Parathion (Ethyl) - Correction Notice of Cancellation Order 2/92

FEB 6 1992

   Dear Addressees:

     On January 17, 1992, EPA announced that it was extending the use period
for certain formulations of the pesticide parathion.  This announcement
appeared in the Federal Register on January 29.  Some of you may have received
an erroneous listing of the  canceled products that may and may not be used.
For your  information, we are enclosing a package that includes the  corrected
listings of parathion products.  The Agency regrets any inconvenience caused
by the errors.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Corrections To The Amended Cancellation Order

     On January 29, 1992, EPA issued an amendment to the December 13, 1991
cancellation order of ethyl parathion (parathion) pesticide products.  The
amended order extended the period for using existing stocks of certain
canceled parathion products, specifically, non-emulsifiable concentrate
products, until July 31, 1992.  The amended order identified those specific
products for which extended use of existing stocks is permitted (Tables 1 and
2 of the amended order), and those specific products for which extended use of
existing stocks is not permitted (Tables 3 and 4 of the amended order).

     The Agency has discovered that four products were mistakenly omitted from
the tables listing products for which use has been extended until July 31,
1992. Specifically, Helena Chemical Company's products 5905-255 (Parathion
25WP) and 5905-408 (Parathion 8 Flowable), Gowan Chemical Company's product
10163- 127 (Prokil Parathion 25WSB),and Drexel Chemical Company's product
19713-237 (Parathion Bait 2).  The corrected tables are presented below.  The
Agency regrets any inconvenience caused by these omissions.
