EPA is directed by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act as amended in 1988 (FIFRA '88) to review all pesticide products containing active ingredients initially registered before November 1, 1984, and to reregister those products that have a substantially complete data base and do not pose unreasonable adverse effects to people or the environment. This pesticide reregistration program is to be completed by the late 1990's. The RED FACTS fact sheet summarizes EPA's conclusion, as set forth in the Reregistration Eligibility Document (or RED), that products containing a pesticide do not pose unreasonable risks when used as directed by Agency-approved labeling, and are eligible for reregistration. Dried blood, or blood meal, is produced from clean, fresh beef blood, obtained from cattle slaughter houses. Dried blood is used in combination with other pesticide active ingredients as an outdoor animal repellant. These dust formulations are applied in a band to the soil around ornamental plants, trees and shrubs, to repel rabbits and dogs.
