Acute Health Effects: From MSDS POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS EYES: Eye contact may include discomfort, tearing, swelling, redness, 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: Ingestion may cause irritation of the digestive tract which may include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If swallowed, this substance is considered slightly toxic to internal organs. INHALATION: The systemic toxicity of this substance has not been determined. However, it should be practically non-toxic to internal organs if inhaled. TARGET ORGANS: Carbaryl is a moderate reversible inhibitor of the cholinesterase, an enzyme involved in transmission of nerve impulses.

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. If irritation persists, call a doctor. SKIN: 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 to an emergency treatment center or hospital. INHALATION: If respiratory discomfort or irritation occurs, move the person to fresh air. See a doctor if discomfort or irritation continues. NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: In severe poisoning, measurement of blood cholinesterase activity may be used in monitoring exposure, but may not be reliable detectors of carbamate poisoning because enzyme activities may revert to normal within minutes or hours of exposure. If signs and/or symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition appear, atropine sulfate is antidotal. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Medical Information: Call day or night, 1-800-225-2883
