ʻO US Right to Know, kahi hui hoʻolaha hoʻolaha mea kūʻai aku, ua waiho i kahi hoʻokolokolo ma ka Pōʻakahi e kūʻē ana i ka Agency Protection Environmental Agency (EPA) no ka ʻaihue ʻana i nā ʻāpana o ke Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). ʻO Public Citizen Litigation Group, kahi loio loio lehulehu e pili ana i Wakinekona, DC, ke kū nei i ka pono o US e ʻike i ka hana.

ʻO ka hoʻopiʻi, i waiho ʻia ma ka ʻĀpana ʻĀpana o US ma Wakinekona, DC, e ʻimi nei i nā palapala e pili ana i ka launa pū ʻana o ka EPA me ka Food and Drug Administration (FDA) e pili ana i ka hoʻāʻo ʻana i nā laʻana meaʻai no nā koena o ka nāhelehele e luku ana i ka lāʻau i kapa ʻia ʻo glyphosate. ʻO Glyphosate ka mea kanu lāʻau make i hoʻohana nui ʻia i ka honua a ʻo ia ka mea nui i ka Monsanto Co.'s Roundup herbicides a me nā huahana hoʻomake nāhelehele. Ua ulu aʻe nā hopohopo e pili ana i ka kemika mai ka World Health Organization i 2015 i ʻōlelo ʻia e nā loea maʻi ʻaʻai he glyphosate ma ke ʻano he kino kanaka make paha.

No nā makahiki he nui, ua hoʻāʻo ka FDA i kēlā me kēia makahiki he mau kaukani meaʻai no nā pesticides like ʻole e hoʻoholo i ka hoʻokō ʻana me nā pae hoʻomanawanui i hoʻokumu ʻia e ka EPA. Akā i ka 2016 wale nō i hoʻomaka ai ka FDA i kahi hoʻokolohua palena ʻole no nā koena glyphosate i ka meaʻai, a ʻaʻole i hōʻike ka ʻoihana i nā hopena kūhelu mai kēlā mau hoʻokolohua. ʻO nā palapala i loaʻa mai loko mai o ka FDA e hōʻike ana i ke koena o ka mea hoʻomake nāhelehele i loaʻa i nā laʻana meaʻai he nui, e like me ka meli a me nā ʻoka.

Ke hoʻopiʻi nei ʻo US Right to Know e koi aku iā EPA e hoʻokō i kahi noi a FOIA i noi ʻia i Iulai 2016 e ʻimi nei e hoʻokuʻu i nā palapala e pili ana i nā kamaʻilio a ka EPA me ka FDA e pili ana i nā koena e hoʻāʻo nei no glyphosate, a me nā kamaʻilio like a ka EPA me Monsanto e pili ana ka mea like.

Ua noi pū ka hoʻopiʻi iā EPA e kūlike me kahi FOIA i waiho ʻia i Pepeluali 2017 e ʻimi nei i nā moʻolelo ma waena o nā limahana EPA a me CropLife America, kahi hui kālepa no ka agrochemical ʻoihana.

Ua ʻōlelo kikoʻī ka hoʻopiʻi ʻana he kuleana kuleana ko US Right to Know ma lalo o FOIA i nā moʻolelo i noi ʻia a ʻaʻohe kumu kū kānāwai o ka EPA no ka hōʻole ʻana e hana i kēia mau moʻolelo. Nīnau ka hoʻopiʻi i ka ʻaha e kauoha iā EPA e hōʻike koke i nā moʻolelo i noi ʻia.

Ua hele mai ka hoʻopiʻi i ʻekolu mau lā ma hope o ka Rep. US ʻO Ted Lieu ua hoʻouna aku i kahi leka i ka FDA ke noi nei i ka ʻike hou aku e pili ana i ka hana a ka FDA e hoʻāʻo ai i nā pae glyphosate i ka meaʻai. Hahai ka leka i kahi hōʻike i paʻi ʻia i loko ke Kahu e hōʻike nei i ka glyphosate, ka kemika i hoʻohana mau ʻia i nā lāʻau make, hiki ke loaʻa i nā meaʻai maʻamau.

ʻO US Right to Know kahi hui nonprofit e hana nei e holomua i ka transparency a me ke kuleana i ka ʻōnaehana meaʻai a ka lāhui. No ka ʻike hou aku e pili ana iā US Right to Know, e ʻoluʻolu e ʻike usrtk.org.
