In August 2018, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a ban on Chlorpyrifos.

EPA Response:

“EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said that the agency is reviewing the court decision. He also questioned data from [CCCEH] regarding the health effects of chlorpyrifos.”
“Even low to moderate levels of exposure to the insecticide chlorpyrifos during pregnancy may lead to long-term, potentially irreversible changes in the brain structure of the child.”
