Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Warning:
Keep out of reach of children.
DANGER!
CAUSES EYE BURNS.
HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED.
MAY CAUSE ALLERGIC SKIN REACTION.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS

LIKELY ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: Skin contact and inhalation

EYE CONTACT: Causes pain, redness and tearing based on toxicity studies.
SKIN CONTACT: No more than slightly toxic or slightly irritating based on toxicity studies. May cause allergic skin reaction based on toxicity studies.
INHALATION:. No more than slightly toxic if inhaled based on toxicity studies.
INGESTION: No more than slightly toxic based on toxicity studies. No significant adverse health effects are expected to develop if only small amounts (less than a mouthful) are swallowed. Ingestion of a related formulation containing the same surfactant found in CAMPAIGN® Herbicide has been reported to produce gastrointestinal discomfort with irritation of the mouth, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Surfactant
The surfactant components of CAMPAIGN® Herbicide are reported to cause irritation to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract and may contribute to the irritation potential reported for this herbicide. Prolonged skin contact may cause more severe irritation and discomfort, with related local redness (erythema) and possible swelling (edema).

N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP)
N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP) is considered a mild to severe eye irritant. Human experience indicates that prolonged skin contact with NMP produces severe irritation. In addition, NMP is readily absorbed through the skin.
Carcinogenicity: The manufacturer's Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) does not state whether the ingredients are considered carcinogens or potential carcinogens.
First Aid: From MSDS
If In Eyes: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
If on Skin: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing. As soon as soap is available, wash thoroughly with soap and water. Wash clothing before reuse. Sensitized persons should avoid further contact and reuse of contaminated clothing. Get medical attention.
If Swallowed: Induce vomiting immediately as directed by Medical personnel. NEVER GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON.

NOTE: For additional human emergency first aid or treatment guidance, call collect, anytime, day or night (314) 694-4000.

Handling/Disposal
Handling: From MSDS
Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. When mixing, loading, or applying this product or repairing or cleaning equipment used with this product, wear eye protection (face shield or safety glasses), chemical-resistant gloves, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, socks and shoes. For applicators applying this product from a tractor that has a completely enclosed cab, eye protection is not required.
Wash hands, face and arms with soap and water as soon as possible after mixing, loading, or applying this product. Wash hands, face and arms with soap and water before eating, smoking, or drinking. Wash hands and arms before using toilet. After work, remove all clothing and shower using soap and water. Do not reuse clothing worn during the previous day's mixing and loading or application of this product without cleaning first. Clothing must be kept and washed separately from other household laundry. Remove saturated clothing as soon as possible and shower. Persons engaged in open pouring of this product must also wear coveralls or a chemical resistant apron.

Drift or runoff may adversely affect non-target plants.
Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present, or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark.
Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters.
Most cases of groundwater contamination involving phenoxy herbicides such as 2,4-D have been associated with mixing/loading and disposal sites. Caution should be exercised when handling 2,4-D pesticides at such sites to prevent
contamination of groundwater supplies. Use of closed systems for mixing or transferring this pesticide will reduce the possibility of spills. Placement of the mixing/loading equipment on an impervious pad to contain spills will help prevent groundwater contamination.
Disposal: From MSDS
Pesticide wastes are toxic. Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixtures, or rinsate is a violation of Federal law and may contaminate groundwater. If these wastes cannot be disposed of according to label use instructions, contact y
