Interpretive Guideline on Residential Exposure to Methyleugenol

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) announces the availability of an interpretive guideline for residential exposure to methyleugenol in bait stations and lures during invasive pest eradication program activities. Anticipated lifetime exposure to methyleugenol when used in either bait stations or lures by the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) invasive pest eradication programs does not pose a significant cancer risk to the average resident near treated areas for purposes of Proposition 65.  The estimated lifetime cancer risk is calculated to be well below one excess cancer case in an exposed population of 100,000, the risk level that represents no significant cancer risk.
