Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION Emergency Overview CAUTION! Color: White Form: Solid powder Odor: Musty talc Harmful if inhaled or ingested. Causes eye irritation. Routes of Exposure Inhalation; Skin Contact; Eye Contact. Potential Health Effects EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE: Exposure during the labeled use of this product is expected to be minimal. Consumers should refer to the packaging label for proper handling procedures. Sufficient exposure to cyfluthrin, the active ingredient in this product, may cause eye or skin irritation characterized by redness or itching. In addition, sufficient exposure to cyfluthrin may produce paresthesia (a tingling or burning sensation on the surface of the skin. This is a frequently reported symptom associated with sufficient dermal exposure to alpha-cyano (Type II) synthetic pyrethroids and normally subsides without treatment within 24 hours. The onset of these symptoms usually occurs 2-12 hours after exposure. Mucous membrane irritation involving the nose, throat and upper respiratory tract may occur from inhalation of aerosols containing cyfluthrin. Based on EPA Toxicity Category criteria, this material is mildly toxic by the oral and dermal routes of exposure. MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: No specific medical conditions are known which may be aggravated by exposure to the active ingredient in this product. As with all materials which can cause upper respiratory tract irritation, persons with a history of asthma, emphysema, or hyperreactive airways disease may be more susceptible to overexposure. In addition, pulmonary and respiratory diseases may be aggravated by exposure to respirable crystalline silica.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS Based on animal studies, no adverse effects or symptoms would be expected from chronic exposure to the active ingredient in this product during normal use. This product may contain up to approximately 0.3% total crystalline silica. However, the amount of respirable crystalline silica is expected to be significantly lower based on data provided by the raw material manufacturer. Excessive long-term exposure to respirable crystalline silica may cause silicosis, a form of progressive pulmonary fibrosis. Severe and permanent lung damage may result.
Carcinogenicity: This product is not listed as a carcinogen by NTP or IARC, or regulated as a carcinogen by OSHA. However, it may contain crystalline silica (quartz) , a substance which is classified by NTP as a Group 2 carcinogen and by IARC as a Group I carcinogen. Crystalline silica is a naturally-occurring mineral component of many sands and clays. Although controversial, the carcinogenic potential of crystalline silica must be considered if it is inhaled under excessive exposure conditions. However, the respirable portion of the silica which may be contained in this product is small, such that excessive inhalation exposure during normal conditions of use is unlikely. NTP: Crystalline silica is classified as an NTP Anticipated Human Carcinogen -
First Aid: FIRST AID FOR EYES: Hold eyelids open and flush with a steady, gentle stream of water for 15 minutes. Call a physician if irritation develops or persists. FIRST AID FOR SKIN : Wash skin immediately with soap and warm water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. FIRST AID FOR INHALATION: If a person is overcome by excessive exposures to this material, remove to fresh air or uncontaminated area. If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth. Get medical attention as soon as possible. FIRST AID FOR INGESTION.: If ingestion is suspected, call a physician or poison control center. Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to do so by physician or poison control center. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Treat symptomatically. Published data indicate vitamin E acetate can prevent and/or mitigate symptoms of paresthesia caused by synthetic pyrethroids.
