The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that one
of the most commonly used pesticides found in dozens of
home-and-garden products may be more dangerous to people
than previously thought.
The Agency's pending ruling will most likely remove the
pesticide Dursban, also known as chlorpyrifos, from all
over-the-counter products. Although farmers will still be
allowed to spray it on crops, the chemical's agricultural
use will be more strictly regulated. Whether professional
exterminators will be allowed to employ it to kill termites,
ants and cockroaches is uncertain.
To find out more about this controversial chemical you can
consult the Genium MSDS for Chlorpyrifos
Genium's MSDS Collection contains MSDSs for
several materials that have either been banned from
production or are no longer produced in the United States.
This feature makes the reference particularly useful in the
event of potential exposure to these banned chemicals.
When you want to learn more about the hazards of a chemical
but you don't have the vendors' MSDS for it, Genium's
Handbook of Safety, Health and Environmental Data and MSDS
Collection can be your next best choice.
