Federal court orders US EPA to remove chlorpyrifos from the market

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ordered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to remove chlorpyrifos from sale in the United States within 60 days. 
 
A coalition of farmworkers and environmental groups sued last year after then-EPA chief Scott Pruitt reversed an Obama-era effort to ban chlorpyrifos, which is widely sprayed on citrus fruit, apples and other crops. The attorneys general for several states including California, New York and Massachusetts joined the case against EPA. 
 
In a split decision, the court said that Pruitt, a Republican forced to resign earlier this summer amid ethics scandals, violated federal law by ignoring the conclusions of agency scientists that chlorpyrifos is harmful.
