US EPA stands by dichlorvos

The US EPA has denied a petition by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to ban the use of the organophosphate insecticide, dichlorvos (DDVP). The NRDC's claims that the Agency improperly assessed the toxicity of dichlorvos and its dietary and residential exposure are "without merit", the EPA says. It also denies the NRDC's claim that its risk assessments involved the unlawful removal of the additional safety factor for the protection of infants and children.
