The NRDC first filed the petition in 2009. The EPA denied it in 2014, claiming that TCVP in pet products does not pose a risk to human health. The NRDC appealed the decision, and as part of that lawsuit the EPA agreed to conduct another human health risk assessment. In that evaluation, the EPA concluded that exposure to TCVP may harm the developing brains of children.
