So Anvisa suspend all sales and production of these three factories. The suspend time can reach maximum of 90 days, and factories have a plea period of 15 days.
Anvisa found that Ourofino’s factory located in Uberaba city of Brazil, used unidentified Technical to manufacture formulation products, so Anvisa suspend Ourofino’s sales of 230 MT Glyphosate and 790,000 L Sucesso BR.
Prentiss’s fungicide Flexin was halted, because Prentiss has changed registered recipe of formulation products. And the same time, Anvisa found that Active ingredient’s content of Pren-D and Prend 806 from Prentiss Company were lower than registered content, and related impurities’ toxicity was higher. The survey also found that active ingredient Glyphosate of Shadow, Gliato, Gly-up and tupan came from companies which still did not gain registrations in Brazil.
The survey also found that Herbicide Zaphir ( Imazephyr) from DAV agro company was mixed with defective products. Anvisa said that this violation of pesticide will be punished by paying 1,500,000 BRL fine or canceling this product’s toxicity assessment reports. IF further survey found this product has caused illegal activities, Authorities would hand over this case to the judicial department for punishment.
