"Phosmet is an insecticide used to control insect pests on ornamental plants and a wide variety of agricultural crops including alfalfa, fruits and vegetables. This document (Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2017-07, Phosmet) presents an updated human health risk assessment for phosmet, based on the additional information submitted to the PMRA by the registrant. When considering all the currently available information, the human health risk assessment identified concerns for workers handling phosmet during its application and for people conducting post-application activities such as hand harvesting and thinning. The level of precaution needed to lower potential post-application risks to an acceptable level is not feasible. Therefore, PMRA is proposing to phase-out the registration of phosmet products"--Executive summary, p. 1.
