Enclosed is the latest notice of the Reregistration Notification Network
(RNN) dated July 14, 1994.  In it is a listing of processed food tolerances 
that have recently been revoked or proposed to be revoked as a result of
the current interpretation of the Delaney Clause.  Also listed is the
recent voluntary cancellation of all mevinphos (Phosdrin) uses.

The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of recent or
impending pesticide use cancellations, tolerance revocations, and other 
items of agricultural interest.  To the best of our knowledge, the uses 
mentioned here, unless otherwise indicated, will not appear on any label 
registered by the USEPA after those uses are canceled.  We recommend that 
you express any concerns or questions you have to the contact mentioned 
below or to your NAPIAP State Liaison Representative.  If you wish to 
contact us at USDA, our phone number is (301) 504-8846, and our fax number 
is (301) 504-8063.


mancozeb     The USEPA has removed the food additive regulation for   
             mancozeb on RAISINS.  It has been determined that this food 
             additive regulation is not needed because any residues of 
             mancozeb on raisins are covered by the tolerance set for 
             grapes, the raw commodity of raisins.  This rule responds to a 
             petition submitted by the Mancozeb Task Force, which requested 
             that EPA revoke the food additive regulation for mancozeb on 
             raisins.  Comments with reference to OPP-260054 should be sent 
             to the Hearing Clerk and OPP docket at EPA by 8/1/94.
   For additional information:   Send comments to both of these places:
