Video: Jim Callan on Protecting Sulfuryl Fluoride Food Uses

Pesticide Issues

Callan, from the Sulfuryl Fluoride Agricultural Coalition, explains the importance of food uses of sulfuryl flouride and efforts being made to preserve this use..

| May 8, 2013

NPMA has been fighting to retain food uses for sulfuryl fluoride following EPA’s January 2011 announcement that the Agency was taking steps to begin a phased-down withdrawal of the fumigant in food-processing facilities. One of the goals of NPMA Legislative Day ’13 attendees — especially those involved in fumigation work — was to make their legislators aware of this misguided proposal. And soon after Legislative Day, U.S. Reps. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) and Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), along with a bipartisan group of 13 other representatives, introduced the Pest Free Food Supply Act. The legislation would force EPA to withdraw a proposed regulation that would remove the authorized food uses of sulfuryl fluoride.

In the following video, PCT spoke with Jim Callan, from the Sulfuryl Fluoride Agricultural Coalition, who explained the importance of protecting food uses of sulfuryl flouride.
