May 12, 2019 - Novartis today announced a voluntary recall of three lots of Promacta (eltrombopag) 12.5 mg for oral suspension to the consumer level.

Washington State Department of Agriculture followed up: Gypsy Moth Aerial Spraying
(Parts of King, Kitsap & Snohomish Counties were targeted for invasive Gypsy Moth eradication efforts. Some Facebook readers asked these questions.)
SMcD: They sprayed over my house this morning. I’m wondering if I should have covered my strawberries and rhubarb?
WSDA:It won't harm them, or you. It is approved for use in organic gardening/agriculture and you can harvest the same day that it is used. Hope that helps!
BL: What sort of impact will the Btk have to native caterpillar species? Are there any plans to lessen the impact or remediate the losses of native moths and butterflies?
WSDA: Native species will only be impacted if they have a similar life cycle to the gypsy moth. Not many natives do, with tent caterpillars being an exception. Studies have shown that while natives are reduced in a treatment area, they quickly repopulate. Without treatment, gypsy moths could totally destroy the habitat for native species. It is a short term loss for some natives, but a long term gain for sure.
WSDA: Hey folks! If you haven't already, you can sign up for alerts for future treatments at agr.wa.gov/gypsymoth

OLYMPIA – Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Director Kelly Susewind, Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz, USDA Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen, and Regional Forester Glenn Casamassa today signed a “Shared Stewardship” Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), calling it a model for other states to follow.
The MOU, only the second of its kind in the nation, establishes a framework for Washington state and the USDA Forest Service to work collaboratively toward mutual goals and effectively respond to the increasing suite of challenges facing communities, landscapes, and natural resources across the state....
