The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) agreed with PETA’s comments on a high production volume (HPV) chemicals rule that would have required animal testing and removed reproductive and developmental toxicity testing requirements for sorbic and ethanedioic acids. Each test would have used 675 animals (rats or rabbits). Also citing our comments, the EPA removed acute and subchronic testing requirements for chloroalkanes. These tests would have used another 50 rats. Altogether, 1,400 animals were spared!
