   Fipronil is an outstanding insecticide and has played an important role in pest control in China. However, owing to the harmful effect of fipronil on shellfishes and bees, Chinese government has restricted the use of fipronil in China since 1 October 2009. According to COM's market survey, almost all fipronil used on rice has been out of the market in China. However, currently, some fipronil producers still have no production license and these producers can evade the government's market supervision through change the name of fipronil, thus, a small amount of fipronil is still used on rice.
