Warnings: CAUSES SUBSTANTIAL BUT TEMPORARY EYE INJURY
DO NOT GET IN EYES OR ON CLOTHING
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYES: This substance is a moderate eye irritant and causes substantial but temporary eye injury. The degree of the injury will depend on the amount of material that gets into the eye and the speed and thoroughness of the first aid treatment. Signs and symptoms of overexposure may include discomfort, irritation and redness, and blurred vision.
SKIN: This substance is not expected to cause skin irritation.
INGESTION: If swallowed, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs.
INHALATION: If inhaled, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs.
SENSITIZATION: This product contains trace quantities of methylisothiazolinone and methylchloroisothiazolinone as preservatives. At higher concentrations these preservatives have been shown to cause allergic skin reactions in susceptible individuals. These preservatives are also found in a number of widely used personal care products, such as shampoos and cosmetics.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS

TERATOGENICITY: GLYPHOSATE: No evidence of teratogenic effects. Results of rat and rabbit teratology studies indicate that no birth defects were noted. This included dose levels of glyphosate that were maternally toxic. IMAZAPYR: Results of rat and rabbit teratology studies did not reveal any teratogenic or fetotoxic effects.
REPRODUCTIVE TOXIN: GLYPHOSATE: No evidence of adverse reproductive effects. Glyphosate was fed continuously to rats at very high dose levels for 2 successive generations. Toxicity was reported in offspring from the high dose, a level which also produced adverse effects on the mothers. In a 3-generation study conducted at lower dose levels, no effects were seen on the ability of male or female rats to reproduce. IMAZAPYR: No data available.
MUTAGENICITY: GLYPHOSATE: Glyphosate has not produced any genetic changes in various mutagenicity tests involving animals and animal or bacterial cells. IMAZAPYR: Technical imazapyr is not considered a mutagen. Test results were negative re unscheduled DNA synthesis rat hepatocyte assay, in vitro Chinese hamster ovary (CHO)/hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyl transferase (HGPRT) mutation assay, bacterial/microsome reverse mutation (Ames) test and in vitro chromosomal aberrations in Chinese hamster ovary cells.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
CARCINOGENICITY COMMENTS: GLYPHOSATE: Glyphosate is not considered to be a carcinogen. Glyphosate did not produce tumors in any of the long-term toxicology studies. EPA has classified glyphosate in category ***E*** (Evidence of non-carcinogenicity for humans).
Mice: 2-year feeding study. Reduced body weight gain and effects on liver tissues were observed at high dose levels.
Rats: 2-year feeding study. Reduced body weight gain and eye changes were observed at the high dose level in one study, whil
