Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: CAUSES IRREVERSIBLE EYE DAMAGE
- CAUSES SKIN IRRITATION
- MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED OR ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN
- DO NOT GET IN EYES, ON SKIN, OR ON CLOTHING
- KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYES: Causes irreversible eye damage. Symptoms may include pain, tearing, swelling, redness and blurred vision.
SKIN: This substance is a skin irritant so contact with the skin could cause prolonged (weeks) injury to the affected area. The degree of injury will depend on the amount of material that gets on the skin and the speed and thoroughness of the first aid treatment. Symptoms may include pain or a feeling of heat, discoloration, swelling and blistering. The dermal toxicity of this substance has not been determined. However, it may be slightly toxic to internal organs if absorbed through the skin. The degree of injury will depend on the amount absorbed.
INGESTION: This substance is slightly toxic to internal organs if swallowed.
INHALATION : If inhaled, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs. This substance may be irritating if inhaled. Respiratory tract irritation may include, but may not be limited to, one or more of the following: nasal discharge, sore throat, coughing, bronchitis and difficulty in breathing.

COMMENTS HEALTH: Depending upon the extent and degree of overexposure to the product, signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result following either ingestion, skin contact or inhalation routes of exposure. Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result from either acute (one time), subchronic (repeated short-term) and chronic (daily life-time) overexposure to the product.

Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition usually occur within 12 hours following overexposure, These effects may include, but may not be limited to, headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constriction of the pupil of the eye, blurred or dark vision, excessive salivation or nasal discharge, profuse sweating and abdominal cramps. Incontinence, unconsciousness, convulsions and breathing difficulties are indicative of severe poisoning. In untreated severe poisoning, death is due to respiratory failure or cardiac arrest.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Depending upon the extent and degree of overexposure to the product, signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result following either ingestion, skin contact or inhalation routes of exposure. Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result from either acute (one time), subchronic (repeated short-term) and chronic (daily life-time) overexposure to the product.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
CARCINOGENICITY COMMENTS: EPA has classed acephate in category C as a possible human carcinogen based on the liver tumor findings in the mouse lifetime feeding study. Liver pathology was observed at dose levels of 250 and ]000 ppm (37.5 and 150 mg/kg/dy), while an increased incidence of liver cancer was noted in the high dose (150 mg/kg/dy) female mice only Acephate has not demonstrated any evidence of carcinogenic potential in any other species.
Results of a mouse lifetime Triforine feeding study indicated that there was an increased incidence of liver and lung tumors. There was no significant increase in tumors in the rat chronic study (NOEL = 626 ppm or 31.3 mg/kg/dy).
Hexakis was not carcinogenic in either the rat or mouse lifetime feeding studies or the 2 year dog chronic study.
First Aid: From MSDS
EYES: Flush eyes immediately with fresh water for at least 15 minutes while holding the eyelids open Remove contact lenses if worn. Call a physician.
SKIN: Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Remove and wash contaminated clothing. If irritation develops, get medical attention.
INGESTION: If swallowed: Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician or Poison Control Center (1-800-457-2022). Drink promptly a large quantity of milk, egg whites, or gelatin solution. If these are not available, drink large quantities of water. Avoid alcohol.
INHALATION: If signs or symptoms of respiratory irritation occur, move the person to fresh air. If irritation persists, see a doctor.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: Probable mucosal damage may contraindicate use of gastric lavage. This material contains a cholinesterase inhibitor. Measurement of blood cholinesterase activity may be useful in monitoring exposure. If signs of cholinesterase inhibition appear, atropine sulfate is antidotal. 2-PAM (PROTOPAM) is also antidotal and may be used in conjunction with atropine but should not be used alone.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Medical Information: Call day or night, 1-800-454-2333 OR 1-800-457-2022.
