Preliminary report from Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) found neither human safety nor environmental risks to be excessive.

as extracted:

Based on the preliminary risk assessment, the PMRA proposes to conclude that the use of pest control products containing triclosan in Canada does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health.

Therefore, the PMRA proposes to conclude that the use of pest control products containing triclosan does not pose an unacceptable risk to the environment.

Hi Phil Geis,

And you don't agree with this? Triclosan has always been controversial and the Health Canada had already limited the amounts that can be put in cosmetic products, mouth wash etc. But with this preliminary report, there probably won't be a complete ban (as what happened with other endocrine disruptors like BPA or some of the pthalates). Have the FDA or the EPA released their own findings?

I offered this for information and if you read carefully you'll see I offered no opinion either way.

Why don't you find the information for us.
