California EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has extended until April 7, 2010, the public comment period on its proposal to add epoxiconazole, a triazole fungicide used on coffee beans and bananas grown outside the United States, to the state’s Proposition 65 (Prop. 65) list of chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm. According to OEHHA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified the chemical as likely to be carcinogenic to humans. If the fungicide is added to the list, warnings will have to be provided to California consumers purchasing products containing the substance. See OEHHA News, March 8, 2010.
