12/06/06 Petition to Amend FIFRA Section 25(b); Comment Period Reopened - EPA issued a notice in the Federal Register of September 13, 2006, concerning a petition filed by the Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA) requesting the Agency to modify the minimum risk regulations at 40 CFR 152.25(f) for those products that claim to control public health pests to be subject to EPA registration requirements as a precondition of their sale. This document reopens the comment period for an additional 30 day period.
12/06/06 Rule on Food Packaging Treated with a Pesticide - This rule excepts from the definitions of “pesticide Chemical” and “pesticide chemical residue” under FFDCA section 201(q), food packaging (e.g. paper and paperboard, coatings, adhesives, and polymers) that is treated with a pesticide as defined in the FIFRA section 2(u). As a result, such ingredients in food packaging treated with a pesticide are exempt from regulation under FFDCA section 408 as pesticide chemical residues. Further, a food that bears or contains such ingredients are not subject to enforcement by the FDA under section 402(a)(2) (B) of the FFDCA since the ingredients are not pesticide chemical residues. Instead, such ingredients are subject to regulation by the FDA as food additives under FFDCA section 409.
