Industry loses case against EFSA on carbofuran

FMC and Arysta LifeScience have lost their court action against the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) over its evaluation of the insecticide/nematicide, carbofuran. The EU authorities decided in 2006 not to re-register carbofuran and the companies were seeking annulment of the EFSA's opinion on the active ingredient's risk assessment.
