The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of recent or
impending pesticide use cancellations and tolerance revocations.To the best of 
our knowledge, the uses mentioned here, unless otherwise indicated, will
not appear on any label registered by the USEPA following their expected
cancellation.  We would recommend that you express any concerns or questions
you may have to the contact mentioned below or your NAPIAP State Liaison

  endrin   The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revoked the action levels
           (Compliance Policy Guide, 7141.01) for endrin tolerances on food
           and animal feed as of 7/28/93.  This follows the revocation by 
           the USEPA of the tolerances for endrin on 6/9/93.  Cancellation 
           of some products occurred in 1979 with the final determination 
           on the Special Review (formerly called RPAR) of endrin.  The
           remaining products were cancelled by 1986 except for one used as 
           a toxicant on bird perches which was canceled in 1991.  FDA has
           concluded that endrin is no longer present in the environment to
           the extent that it may be contaminating food or feed at levels of
           regulatory concern.
