Australia suspends two fenthion products

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has suspended the registrations of two fenthion-based insecticides because of dietary risk concerns. The 12-month suspension of Bayer CropScience’s agricultural Lebaycid Insecticide Spray (fenthion 550 g/litre) and the garden product, Lebaycid Fruit Fly & Insect Killer (fenthion 80 g/litre), runs until October 30th 2013. The APVMA proposed the suspension of many fenthion uses in September because of acute dietary risks or insufficient residue data ( Agrow No 648, p 18). The suspension applies to products used on food-producing plants. Five pest control products and one veterinary product are under review but not affected by the suspension.
