The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to revoke food additive regulations for the pesticides acephate, triadimefon (1- (4-chlorophenoxy) -3, 3-dimenthyl-1 (1H-1, 2, 4-triazol-1-YL) -2-butanone), iprodione, and imazalil, which EPA has determined "induce cancer" within the meaning of the Delaney Clause of Section 409 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).

In order to bring EPA's policy into conformity with a court ordered strict legal interpretation of the Delaney Clause, which forbids establishment of food additive tolerances for any chemical which has been found to induce cancer in laboratory animals, EPA has proposed to revoke the food additive tolerances for the abovementioned pesticides. Previously EPA, using a de minimis interpretation of the Delaney Clause, had permitted these tolerances because they presented only very negligible risk.
