DEET restriction

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

New York state bill would ban the sale or distribution of products containing more than 30% of the insect repellant DEET (n, n-diethyl-m-toluamide), or more than 33.33% DEET in controlled-release formulations. The bill, A 955, was introduced by Richard Brodsky (D-Dist. 86) Jan. 6. While not preventing the use of all DEET insect repellents, the legislation would restrict the use of "more dangerous, and not necessarily more effective, high concentration formulas," a memo on the bill states. The Chemical Specialty Manufacturers Association has opposed this bill in past sessions
