Agricultural Retailers Association Applauds EPA Action to Stop False Cancer Claims on Glyphosate Labeling

Fri, 09 Aug 2019 14:17:51 CDT

Agricultural Retailers Association Applauds EPA Action to Stop False Cancer Claims on Glyphosate Labeling Yesterday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued guidance to registrants of glyphosate to clarify labeling requirements. In its guidance, EPA said it will no longer approve product labels claiming glyphosate is known to cause cancer, stating that it is a false claim that does not meet the labeling requirements of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).



“This is a significant victory for science-based regulation,” said Agricultural Retailers Association President and CEO Daren Coppock. “Our members, their farmer customers, and the public rely on EPA’s scientific expertise to evaluate pesticides for human health and environmental effects.”



Following a review in April, EPA found, as it has before, that glyphosate is not a carcinogen, and there are no risks to public health when glyphosate is used in accordance with its current label. These scientific findings are consistent with the conclusions of science reviews by many other countries and other federal agencies.



“EPA has demonstrated the sound science behind its decisions repeatedly with glyphosate,” said Coppock. “It would be irresponsible and misleading to require or allow language on a label that conflicts with the conclusions of the scientific review.”
