Use on crops imported to the United States

While the use of monocrotophos (mcp) is forbidden on crops grown in the United States, crops that have been grown with it are still directly imported to the US for consumption. Below is a partial and not-exhaustively researched list of these foods. It is in no way intended as an indictment of the places listed, but rather as a resource for people to both better inform their personal choices, and increase awareness of the continued usage of this highly toxic compound. Its impacts will always be most profound on the regions and inhabitants of the regions in which it is used.

Latin America: Coffee, bananas, melons, green beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, strawberries

It is legal in Brazil, so Good Luck.
