Sodium-o-phenylphenate (SOPP) on Fruit
SOPP is used as a post-harvest fungicide for specific fruits. SOPP was listed as a carcinogen under Proposition 65 in 1990.
Exponent conducted an evaluation of theoretical exposure to workers and consumers potentially exposed to the residual SOPP levels on fruit. We measured airborne levels and used dermal disposition values to estimate a lifetime daily dose under occupational and consumer scenarios.
