Syngenta, Bayer pesticides pose honeybee threat – EFSA

“Bayer CropScience said in a statement it did not believe EFSA’s findings altered the conclusions of previous EU assessments of its products, which found no unacceptable risks in their use.”

“Three widely-used pesticides made by Switzerland’s Syngenta and Germany’s Bayer pose an acute risk to honeybees, the European Union’s food safety watchdog said on Wednesday, but stopped short of linking them to bee colony collapse.” [Reuters]
