On November 15th, 2021, the U.S Federal register published a regulation by the U.S environmental protection agency on “Pyriproxyfen; Pesticide Tolerances”.

The document outlines the following key points:

  • The regulation establishes tolerances for residues of pyriproxyfen, including its metabolites and degradates;
  • The maximum residue limits are permitted on food products such as eggs, poultry fat, poultry meat, and poultry meat byproducts;
  • Tolerance is set in or on eggs at 0.1 parts per million (ppm), poultry fat at 0.1 ppm, poultry meat at 0.1 ppm, etc.;
  • Short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of tolerance on these food products is unlikely to pose a health risk to consumers.

The regulation is effective from November 15th, 2021.
