Subject: Status of Methyl Iodide Approval for Use on Strawberries

Dear Mrs. Verder-Carlos,

I would like to know if a decision has been made on the proposed approval of methyl iodide, after the public comment period ended on June 29, 2010.

I am deeply concerned that the results of the scientific review committee has determined that the State’s approval of methyl iodide is, “inadequate, flawed and (based upon) improperly conducted scientific research.”

Please inform me of any recent decisions you may have made regarding the approval of this harmful chemical.
