ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- There are very little data available on the toxicity of metolachlor to humans. Animal models have shown mild to moderate irritancy of skin. Burns have not been noticed. There may be a problem with persons who have G-6-PD deficiency, but this is only proposed, based on an animal model. Until more is known, the following basic measures apply.
- Exposed individuals should have a careful, thorough medical history and physical examination performed, looking for any abnormalities. Exposure to chemicals with a strong odor often results in such nonspecific symptoms as headache, dizziness, weakness, and nausea.
- Many chemicals cause irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. In severe cases respiratory tract irritation can progress to ARDS/acute lung injury, which may be delayed in onset for up to 24 to 72 hours in some cases.
- Irritation or burns of the esophagus or gastrointestinal tract are also possible if caustic or irritant chemicals are ingested.
