Abstract The Agency does not routinely include, in its risk assessments, an evaluation of mixtures of active ingredients, either those mixtures of multiple active ingredients in product formulations or those in the applicator’s tank. In the case of the product formulations of active ingredients (that is, a registered product containing more than one active ingredient), each active ingredient is subject to an individual risk assessment for regulatory decision regarding the active ingredient on a particular use site. If effects data are available for a formulated product containing more than one active ingredient, they may be used qualitatively or quantitatively (USEPA, 2004; USFWS/NMFS/NOAA, 2004). Analysis of the available open literature and acute oral mammalian LD50 data for multiple active ingredient products relative to the single active ingredient (for both cyfluthrin and betacyfluthrin) is provided below. This data set is limited and a qualitative analysis does not support any broad conclusions about the interactive nature of the cyfluthrins in combination with other pesticides. Cyfluthrin has registered products that contain multiple active ingredients; there are 17 multiactive ingredient products containing cyfluthrin, which were evaluated in this review.
