The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed to revoke, modify and/or revise certain tolerances for Aluminum tris (O-ethylphosphonate), Carbon disulfide, p-Chlorophenoxyacetic acid, Cyromazine, Dichlobenil, et al.
 


As regards nuts and dried fruits, EPA is proposing the following:
 
  • To revoke the tolerances for residues of carbon disulfide from the application of sodium tetrathiocarbonate on almond; of dichlobenil on fruit, stone, group 12 at 0.15 ppm; and of oxydemeton-methyl on hazelnut and walnut.
  • To list existing tolerances for cranberry and hazelnut at 0.10 ppm.
  • To establish a tolerance for isoxaben residues in or on nut, tree, group 14-12 at 0.02 ppm (revoking the existing tolerances for nut, tree, group 14 at 0.02 ppm and pistachio at 0.02 ppm).
 
The deadline for comments is November 7, 2017.
