Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION Emergency Overview WARNING! Color: Dark gray Form: Solid granules Odor: Bitter bubble gum Organophosphate Insecticide-Cholinesterase Inhibitor; May be fatal if swallowed. Routes of Exposure Inhalation; Skin Contact; Skin Absorption; Eye Contact; Ingestion. 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. However, sufficient exposure to disulfoton, the active ingredient in this product, may result in systemic intoxication due to inhibition of the enzyme cholinesterase. The sequence of development of systemic effects varies with the route of entry, and the onset of symptoms may be delayed up to 12 hours. First symptoms of poisoning may be nausea, increased salivation, lacrimation, blurred vision and constricted pupils. Other symptoms of systemic poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, dizziness and sweating. After inhalation, respiratory symptoms like tightness of chest, wheezing, and laryngeal spasms, may be pronounced at first. If the poisoning is severe, then symptoms of convulsions, low blood pressure, cardiac irregularities, loss of reflexes and coma may occur. In extreme cases, death may occur due to a combination of factors such as respiratory arrest, paralysis of respiratory muscles or intense bronchoconstrictions. Complete symptomatic recovery from sublethal poisoning usually occurs within one week once the source of exposure is completely removed. The fertilizer contained in this product may cause eye, skin or mucous membrane irritation. Ingestion may cause nausea. MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY 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.

The sequence of development of systemic effects varies with the route of entry, and the onset of symptoms may be delayed up to 12 hours. First symptoms of poisoning may be nausea, increased salivation, lacrimation, blurred vision and constricted pupils.

In extreme cases, death may occur due to a combination of factors such as respiratory arrest, paralysis of respiratory muscles or intense bronchoconstrictions. Complete symptomatic recovery from sublethal poisoning usually occurs within one week once the source of exposure is completely removed. The fertilizer contained in this product may cause eye, skin or mucous membrane irritation. Ingestion may cause nausea.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS Cholinesterase inhibition sometimes persists for 2-6 weeks, thus repeated exposure to small amounts of this material may result in an unexpected cholinesterase depression causing symptoms such as malaise, weakness, and anorexia that resemble other illnesses such as influenza. Exposure to a concentration that would not have produced symptoms in a person that was not previously exposed may produce severe symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition in a previously exposed person.
Carcinogenicity: This product is not listed by NTP, IARC or regulated as a carcinogen by OSHA.
First Aid: FIRST AID FOR EYES: Hold eyelids open and flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention immediately. FIRST AID FOR SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists. FIRST AID FOR INHALATION: If a person is overcome by excessive exposures to aerosols of 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. If medical assistance cannot be given immediately, drink large quantities of water. DO NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention. Avoid alcohol. Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: This product contains the organophosphorus insecticide disulfoton, a cholinesterase inhibitor. Cholinesterase inhibition results in stimulation of the central nervous system, the parasympathetic nervous system and the somatic motor nerves. If symptoms of organophosphate poisoning are present, the administration of atropine sulfate is indicated. Administer atropine sulfate in large, therapeutic doses. In mild cases, start treatment by giving 1-2 mg of atropine intravenously every 15 minutes until signs of atropinization appear (dry mouth, flushing, and dilated pupils if pupils were originally pinpoint) In severe cases, start treatment by giving 2-4 mg intravenously every 5-10 minutes until fully atropinized. Dosages for children should be appropriately reduced. 2-PAI
