Warnings: HARMFUL IF INHALED OR ABSORBED THROUGH SKIN
- AVOID BREATHING SPRAY MIST
- AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN, EYES OR CLOTHING

Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYES: This substance is slightly irritating to the eyes. Eye contact may include discomfort, tearing, redness, swelling, 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: 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. This substance may be irritating if inhaled.
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.
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

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: Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eyes. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.
SKIN: If on skin or clothing, take of contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15 to 20 minutes. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.
INGESTION: If swallowed, call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. Have person sip glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to by a poison control center or doctor. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
INHALATION: Move person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or an ambulance, then give artificial respiration, preferably by mouth-to-mouth, if possible. Call a poison control center or doctor for further treatment advice.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: This material contains a cholinesterase inhibitor. Measurement of blood cholinesterase activity may be useful in monitoring exposure. If signs and/or symptoms 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.
