The Position Document addresses the risks and benefits of pesticide products containing the subject active ingredient. The Agency has determined that the use of products containing the subject active ingredient may meet or exceed a risk criterion described in 40 CFR Part 154. Potential hazards will be examined further to determine the nature and extent of the risk, and considering the benefits of the subject active ingredient, whether such risks cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment. The Notice announces that EPA is initiating a Special Review of all pesticide products containing the active ingredient aldicarb (2-methyl-2-(methylthio)propionaldehyde-o-(methylcarbamoyl)oxime). EPA has determined that aldicarb's use, which had led to contamination of ground water, may pose a substantial question of safety to man or the environment.
