3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Notes to Physician There is no specific antidote if this product is ingested. Treat symptomatically. Symptoms of Acute Exposure Exposure results in moderate irritation to the eyes. A skin sensitization (allergic) reaction may occur in some individuals. Hazardous Decomposition Products None Known Physical Properties Appearance: Straw to Rust Colored Liquid Odor: Not Available Unusual Fire, Explosion and Reactivity Hazards Thermal decomposition products may include, but are not limited to, Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide. This product is a NFPA Class IIIA Combustible Liquid.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

If poisoning is suspected, immediately contact a physi- cian, the nearest hospital, or the nearest Poison Con- trol Center. Tell the person contacted the complete product name, and the type and amount of exposure. Describe any symptoms and follow the advice given. Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If victim is fully conscious, give a large quantity of water to drink and get medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Eye Contact: Immediately rinse eyes with a large amount of running water. Hold eye lids apart to rinse the entire surface of the eyes and lids.

Treat symptomatically. Medical Condition Likely to be Aggravated by Expo- sure Individuals with allergy history or pre-existing dermatitis should use extra care in handling this product.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Fire and Explosion Flash Point (Test Method): 161 ˚F Flammable Limits: (% in Air): Lower: %; Upper: % Not Available Autoignition Temperature: Not Available Flammability: Not Applicable Unusual Fire, Explosion and Reactivity Hazards Thermal decomposition products may include, but are not limited to, Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide. This product is a NFPA Class IIIA Combustible Liquid. In Case of Fire Use dry chemical, foam, or CO2 extinguishing me- dia. Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus. Evacuate nonessential person- nel from the area to prevent human exposure to fire, smoke, fumes or products of combustion. Prevent use of contaminated buildings, area, and equipment until decontaminated.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

In Case of Spill or Leak Wear chemical goggles or a full-face shield, rubber gloves, rubber boots, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, head covering, and a NIOSH-approved chemical car- tridge respirator with organic vapor cartridges and dust/mist pre-cartridges or a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). For small spills, cover with an ab- sorbent material such as pet litter. Sweep up, and place in an approved chemical container. Wash the spill area with water containing a strong detergent, ab- sorb with pet litter or other absorbent material, sweep up and place in a chemical container. Seal the con- tainer and handle in an approved manner. Flush the area with water to remove any residue. Do not allow wash water to contaminate water supplies.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Store the material in a well-ventilated, secure area out of the reach of children and domestic animals. Do not store food, beverages or tobacco products in the storage area. Prevent eating, drinking, tobacco usage, and cosmetic application in areas where there is a potential for exposure to the material. Always wash thoroughly after handling.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTEC- TION

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MANUFACTURING, COMMERCIAL BLENDING, AND PACKAGING WORKERS.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute Toxicity/Irritation Studies Ingestion: moderately toxic Oral LD50 (Rat): 300 mg/kg body weight Dermal: slightly toxic Dermal LD50 (Rabbit): > 1,800 mg/kg body weight Inhalation: slightly toxic Inhalation LC50 (Rat): 3.5 mg/l air - 4 hours Eye Contact: moderately irritating (Rabbit) Skin Contact: Not Available Skin Sensitization: sensitizing (Guinea Pig) Mutagenic Potential Abamectin: None Observed (Ames Test and Micronu- cleus Test) Reproductive Hazard Potential Abamectin: Reproductive toxin in animal studies at doses acutely toxic to the maternal animal. Chronic/Subchronic Toxicity Studies Abamectin: Central Nervous System effects in ani- mals. Carcinogenic Potential Abamectin: None Observed Other Toxicity Information Not Available Toxicity of Other Components Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) Listed as an IARC (Group 3) carcinogen not classifi- able as human (No Data Available) with limited animal evidence. Exposure may result in irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Ingestion may cause di- arrhea, respiratory depression, tremors, and chronic pulmonary edema or congestion and hemorrhage. Emulsifier Exposure may result in irritation to eyes, skin or res- piratory tract. Ingestion can cause nausea, vomiting

and diarrhea. Solvent Exposure can cause eye irritation

. Prolonged or re-

peated contact can defat the skin and lead to irritation and /or dermatitis. Solvent Overexposure will result in severe irritation of the eyes, possibly causing eye damage and moderate irritation to the skin. Solvent Exposure may cause eye, skin or respiratory tract irri- tation. Pulmonary aspiration can cause lung damage. Target Organs Active Ingredients Abamectin: Skin, eyes and Central Nervous System Inert Ingredients Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT): Eyes, Skin or Respi-

ratory Tract Emulsifier: Eyes, Skin, and Respiratory Tract Solvent: Skin and Eyes Solvent: Eyes Solvent: Eyes, Skin and Respiratory Tract

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Summary of Effects Abamectin: Highly toxic to aquatic organisms

. Not

bioconcentrateable in fish. Eco-Acute Toxicity Abamectin: Rainbow Trout 96-hour LC50 3.6 ppb Bluegill Sunfish 96-hour LC50 9.6 ppb Daphnia magna 48-hour LC50 0.34 ppb Bobwhite 8-day Dietary LC50 3,102 ppm Mysid Shrimp 48 HR LC50 0.022 ppb Mallard 5-day Dietary LC50 383 ppm Eco-Chronic Toxicity Abamectin: Not Available Environmental Fate Abamectin: Photodegrades rapidly in the environment and is me- tabolized in the soil. Water solubility is limited and material binds to soil tightly and is not taken up from soil to plants. Rapid degradation in the environment with lack of accululation and persistance.
