Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED
CAUSES EYE IRRITATION
AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES, SKIN OR CLOTHING
AVOID BREATHING DUST
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYES: Eye contact may include discomfort, tearing, swelling, redness, and blurred vision.
SKIN: This substance is not expected to cause prolonged or significant skin irritation. If absorbed through the skin, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs.
INGESTION: Ingestion may cause irritation of the digestive tract which may include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If swallowed, this substance is considered slightly toxic to internal organs.
INHALATION: The systemic toxicity of this substance has not been determined. However, it should be practically non-toxic to internal organs if inhaled.
TARGET ORGANS: Carbaryl is a moderate reversible inhibitor of the cholinesterase, an enzyme involved in transmission of nerve impulses.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
NEUROTOXICITY: Carbaryl is not considered to be a neurotoxin in the sense of producing direct histopathological changes to nerve tissue. Delayed and irreversible neurotoxic effects have not been observed in animal toxicology investigations.
TERATOGENICITY: Carbaryl is not considered to be a teratogen or a chemical that causes birth defects. Certain developmental changes have been observed in some species when the dose of carbaryl administered to the mother caused signs of toxicity. Results from monkey teratology studies have not demonstrated birth defects even at maternally toxic dose levels.
MUTAGENICITY: Carbaryl has demonstrated positive findings when tested in some in vitro systems, however results from in vivo mammalian investigations have been negative.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
CARCINOGENICITY COMMENTS: Carbaryl has been associated with the development of tumors in high dose groups in both rats and mice in lifetime feeding studies. In the rat and mouse chronic studies, the NOEL (no observable effect level) for oncogenic findings was 7500 and 1000 ppm, respectively.
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. If irritation persists, call a doctor.
SKIN: As a precaution, wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Remove and wash contaminated clothing.
INGESTION: If swallowed, immediately telephone a poison control center, emergency treatment center or a physician for advice. DO NOT make person vomit unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If medical advice cannot be obtained, then immediately take person and product container to an emergency treatment center or hospital.
INHALATION: If respiratory discomfort or irritation occurs, move the person to fresh air. See a doctor if discomfort or irritation continues.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: In severe poisoning, measurement of blood cholinesterase activity may be used in monitoring exposure, but may not be reliable detectors of carbamate poisoning because enzyme activities may revert to normal within minutes or hours of exposure. If signs and/or symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition appear, atropine sulfate is antidotal.
