dicofol (Kelthane)   The USEPA is staying (postponing) the effective date 
                     of a final rule revoking the food additive tolerance 
                     for dicofol in or on DRIED TEA.  The revocation of 
                     this miticide on dried tea was reported here on 
                     3/23/94.  This revocation has been postponed because 
                     of petitions submitted by The Dicofol Task Force 
                     (Makhteshim-Agan of North America, Inc., and Rohm and 
                     Haas Co.) and NACA.
