Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
EYES: This substance causes moderate eye irritation as indicated by possible discomfort, tearing, swelling, redness, and blurred vision.
SKIN: This substance is not expected to cause skin irritation.
INGESTION: If swallowed, this product may cause gastrointestinal tract irritation.
INHALATION: If inhaled, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs. This substance may be irritating if inhaled.
COMMENTS HEALTH: Inhalation and skin contact are expected to be the primary routes of occupational exposure to ROUNDUP Sure Shot Foam. Occupational exposure to this material has not been reported to cause significant adverse health effects. However, swallowing of a similar, but more concentrated formulation, has been reported to produce gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
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.
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.
MUTAGENICITY: GLYPHOSATE: Glyphosate has not produced any genetic changes in various mutagenicity tests involving in vivo animals or in vitro cellular studies.
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).
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. Call a physician if irritation persists.
SKIN: No first aid procedures are required. 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, with label, to an emergency treatment center.
INHALATION: Since this material is not expected to be an immediate inhalation problem, no first aid procedures are required. If respiratory discomfort or irritation occurs, move the person to fresh air. See a doctor if discomfort or irritation continues.
