The US EPA is proposing to cancel certain uses of the insecticide propoxur after preliminary human health assessment found risks from certain applications. 
EPA and the registrant reached an agreement to voluntarily cancel certain uses of propoxur. At the same time, EPA is proposing to cancel certain other pesticide registrations. Voluntary cancellation is the quickest way to fully address these risks, and best protect public health. EPA is proposing to cancel all indoor aerosol, spray and liquid formulations of propoxur inside hospitals and other commercial or institutional facilities where children may be present and all use in food-handling establishments. 
After these cancellations, there would be no remaining food uses, and no tolerances levels for propoxur. In 2007, EPA cancelled the use of propoxur sprays inside homes, day care facilities, and schools, and in 2014, EPA cancelled propoxur pet collars. Today’s action was conducted as part of the agency’s registration review program. 
EPA is requesting a 30 day comment period that will begin upon publication in the Federal Register.
