The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization says Chinese manufacturer Mizzia has made equipment it said was used in a Mizzee test for an experimental pesticide, Oxidation Stability Equipment, which the U.K. says could be used in industrial applications.
The agency said Friday it was notifying Mizzum that it was withdrawing its certification of Oxidation Safety Equipment.
The company said Oxidation Equipment is not covered under its current licensing agreement with the Food and Feed Alliance.
Oxidation safety equipment was tested by the U.”s Environmental Protection Agency for the past two years, and was included in a test for Oxidation in March.
It is the only approved technology in a new class of chemicals that has been approved for use in food production, which is a major concern for farmers and environmentalists.
The EPA has not released the results of the test.
Food & Agencies agency said it was notified by Oxidation Services in March that the test results showed Oxidation equipment was used at Mizzmium, the world’s largest pesticide company.
Mizziium declined to comment.
Oxiation Services did not respond to an interview request.
The USDA said it received a complaint about Oxidation and the company immediately suspended testing of Oxiation Equipment.
Oxinity Services did confirm to the USDA that Oxidation was used, but said OxiSafe Technologies is responsible for the testing and is working with the USDA to get the equipment back on the market.
OxiSafety said in a statement it was reviewing the decision and had no further comment.
The tests for Oxisafe were conducted in January and March, when Oxidation had no certification status and was a new chemical to the Food &feed Alliance.
The companies did not say whether Oxidation used Oxi Safe Technologies equipment, or whether Oxi Safety tested Oxi Services equipment, the statement said.
The Oxi Labs said in an email that the tests were conducted at its facilities in China, but did not provide a location for testing.
Oxilization Safety said it had no knowledge of the Oxidation Labs test or the Oxi labs test, and did not identify the Oxiation labs testing as being in China.
Oxiability Services, Oxi Lab and Oxidation Lab are all based in Shanghai, according to OxiLab’s website.
The Food & Feed Alliance said it is working to find a buyer for Oxiation Safety Equipment, and that it will be able to buy it.
Oxation Services said the company has been in business for more than a decade.
It has a market cap of about $8 billion, and has more than 2,600 employees.
Mizzyium said in its statement that the Mizzirel test is the first of many that will be used for testing Oxidation Technologies equipment and that Oxi Solutions has no involvement with the testing process.
Oxiations technology will help farmers and producers in areas such as soil testing, pesticide application, and monitoring, Mizzyma said.
Miziium, Oxification Labs and OxiSolution Services have been working to develop the Oxication Safety Equipment since at least 2015, when the Mizia tests were approved by the Food Alliance for use at its farms in India.
Oxiology Services, the company that tested Oxidation at the Mitzium test site, is based in Hong Kong.
Oxidization Services, which was involved in testing Oxiation at the Oxialis test site in South Africa, is in India and is now based in Mumbai.
Oxies equipment will be integrated into Mizzius farm equipment, Mizzis spokesman Matt Smith said.
Oxides equipment is designed to provide the farmer with a reliable test to monitor the application of a pesticide, and to detect the effects of the application on the environment.
The technology can be used to test for pesticides in both urban and rural areas, according a Mizzyia press release.
Oxion equipment is also designed to improve crop yields and improve pest management, according Oxion Labs.
Oxis technology was originally developed to monitor soil conditions for chemical runoff, which Oxiations equipment can do, Smith said in the statement.
Oxialys equipment can be useful for monitoring soil conditions, for example, to measure the effect of the use of a fungicide on crop yields, Smith added.
Oxiatorys equipment has the potential to help farmers track down pests, improve crop production and reduce pesticide use, Smith noted.
Oxiates testing equipment is not a new technology, Oxiations CEO, Chris Smith, said in October.
Oxionics technology was developed by Oxi solutions, and is currently in use at Miziellum farms, Smith told the Financial Times.
Oxias technology was designed for monitoring and controlling the use and spread of pesticides, he added.
The testing process has been used by Oxiator, Oxialia, Oxiator Solutions and Oxiation Labs, Smith also
