A new pesticide called aluminum sulfide has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in aluminum-containing pans, pie pans and aluminum baking pans, the Food & Drug Administration announced on Thursday.
The agency said it approved the drug for use on aluminum foil pans, aluminum aluminum pans, and aluminum aluminum ovens, along with aluminum foil ovens.
The FDA has been working to ban aluminum sulfides, which are used as a chemical in aluminum pans and other products, since the early 1980s, when a study by researchers at the University of California found they were linked to increased rates of cancer, birth defects, respiratory problems and miscarriages in humans.
But aluminum sulfidic acid was banned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1999, while the FDA has not approved any new aluminum sulfadiazine for use.
It’s unclear how the FDA is deciding whether to approve the new aluminum chemical.
According to the FDA, aluminum sulfidation is “an important environmental risk that should be managed to minimize the risk of long-term health impacts.”
The agency also said that it has not yet determined whether to regulate aluminum sulfazide as a new pesticide or whether it should be banned entirely.
The agency has already banned aluminum sulfate in the U, but not in Europe.
Aluminum sulfazides are also used to make polyurethane products.
