More Bee-killing Toxins Under Fire

This just in from Center For Food Safety:

"The toxic pesticide sulfoxaflor is a known bee-killer, but instead of banning it, Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) actually reapproved the poison! Center for Food Safety immediately sued to demand the agency take it off the shelves and our legal team has been hard at work on this case for 2 years. We’re finally nearing the finish line.

Our lawsuit already forced EPA to admit that it unlawfully failed to consider the impacts of sulfoxaflor on federally-protected endangered species like the rusty patched bumble bee. But EPA asked the court to keep sulfoxaflor on the market anyway(!).

The court will soon decide if it should revoke this toxic pesticide’s approval. This case is our best chance at stopping another bee-killing pesticide from being sprayed over millions of acres of crops, pushing bee populations further towards the brink of extinction."
