SECTION II - FIRST AID MEASURES
IF POISONING IS SUSPECTED
or any symptoms are serious, immediately contact a doctor, the nearest
hospital, or the nearest poison control centre. Give the complete product name, describe what happened and follow
the advice given. EYES
Flush eyes with clean water for 5 - 10 mins. holding eyelids apart and obtain medical
Remove contaminated clothing and wash skin, hair and fingernails thoroughly with soap and water. Obtain medical attention if irritation occurs. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Move to fresh air, clean up, and rest. Apply artificial respiration if necessary.

antidote for cholinesterase effects. Morphine, theophylline, aminophylline,
phenothiazines, reserpine, furosemide or ethacrynic acid are contraindicated in

SECTION VI - TOXICOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
ACUTE TOXICITY - UNDILUTED:
(immediate effects of a single overexposure).
Swallowing 1 ounce of the dry powder can cause serious illness for an adult, but death is not likely. Careless use or
accident leading to a) excessive inhalation of dust, mist or vapour, or b) product or spray mix dumped directly on the
face and in mouth can also cause illness. The powder causes irritation on contact with skin or eyes. Allergies or
dermatitis are known to occur with captan, particularly after repeated overexposure on skin. It is not possible to obtain
a harmful dose of this product after it is applied. TECHNICAL DETAILS WITH HAZARD LEVELS ACCORDING TO PCP ACT
Oral LD50 Rat >6,000 mg/kg; inhalation LC50 Rat exceeds 10,000 mg/L (Calculated on LC50s of active ingredients)
Dermal LD50 Rat >3100 mg/kg, slightly toxic. EXPOSURE LIMITS: ACGIH
CHRONIC TOXICITY - ACTIVE INGREDIENT (ai) AND OTHER INGREDIENTS
(The delayed or long term exposure effects)
Carbaryl and malathion products are not known to produce any unavoidable ill effects after repeated exposure or over
a long period of time. The health effects of these ingredients are almost entirely the result of inhibition of an enzyme,
cholinesterase, which assists in transmitting signals between nerve cells. There is no damage to the nerves
themselves. Captan affects cell metabolism, and inhibits use of energy, and cell division at high dose levels, but is so
insoluble that it is poorly absorbed through the skin or from the intestines. All three active ingredients are rapidly
broken down and eliminated from the body, with no long term accumulation.
Carbaryl or malathion do not cause cancer or tumours, and caused no mutagenicity or genetic damage in lab tests.
The active ingredients had no effect on the reproductive capability of rats over two generations (captan, 3 generations),
and caused no birth defects (teratogenicity) in rats or rabbits. Captan also caused no birth defects in dogs or monkeys,
but was teratogenic in hamsters. For humans, there is no risk of any effects on the fetus or later generations from the
dose levels obtainable from this product.
A special hazard-warning label is required on the label of Canadian products containing captan, because it has caused
tumours in one of three strains of mice at high dose levels. It did not cause tumours in rats, or other animal tests, and
two studies showed it inhibited tumour growth and prolonged the life of mice with cancer. Some research agencies
consider captan a carcinogen, others, like ACGIH do not. The cancer risk from normal use of this product is not
The mutagenicity of captan to simple organisms like bacteria or yeast, or to isolated cells is rapidly detoxified by the
presence of blood or in whole animals. Tests in humans showed no genetic damage in production workers.
Interaction with other chemicals is limited by low toxicity, poor uptake and extensive breakdown of the ingredients in
the gut before absorption. The ingredients do not interact to increase toxic effects. Sensitization to captan on skin is
greatly increased by polyethylene glycol, and slightly increased by lanolin/Vaseline.
Thiophanate Methyl is not considered to be a carcinogen or oconogen. The No Adverse Effect Level in 2 year feeding
studies in rats and mice was 160 ppm in the diet and in dogs it was 50 ppm. Thiophanate Methyl had no adverse
effects on the ability of rats to reproduce in a 3-generation reproduction study at levels to 160 ppm in the diet. Higher
levels reduced growth. Thiophanate Methyl was not teratogenic in rats or mice and was not mutagenic in standard test
Eye and skin contact cause irritation. Inflammation or skin rash may occur. Breathing dust may cause irritation or inflammation of lungs, and headache. Swallowing large amounts may cause discomfort, inflammation or bleeding in stomach or intestines, diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, and pinpoint pupils.
Exposure levels, which could be obtained with normal handling or use of this product, are too low to
cause any risk of long term or delayed health effects. Some individuals may develop an allergy.
Repeated overexposure to Carbaryl can increase sensitivity to the acute effects.
