The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has added three pesticides to the Proposition 65 list.
The three commonly used Pesticides are:
- Malathion (CAS No. 121-75-5): Is an organophosphate insecticide that is used in agriculture, residential insect control, public health programs, and residential landscaping.
- Tetrachlorvinphos (CAS No. 22248-79-9): Is an organophosphate insecticide that is mainly found in dermal and feed-through insect control treatment for livestock and is used to kill both ticks and fleas.
- Parathion (CAS No. 56-38-2): Is an organophosphate insecticide that is primarily used on plants containing cotton, vegetables, fruit, wheat, and nuts.
These three pesticides will require a Prop 65 warning starting May 20, 2017.
