Hazard Rating PO BOX 191 NORWICH, NY 13815 EMERGENCY PHONE: 24 HOUR SPILL RESPONSE PHONE: 800-424-9300 CHEMTREC Chemical Nitrofurantoin monohydrate: 1-[[(5- Macrobid® Capsules Nitro-2-furanyl)methylene]amino]-2,4- Marketed Drug Product imidazolidinedione monohydrate Intended Pharmaceutical Nitrofurantoin macrocrystals: 1-[[(5- Nitro-2-furanyl)methylene]amino]-2,4- imidazolidinedione Chemical Nitrofuran Formula: Monohydrate: C 8H6N4O5 H2O Macrocrystals: C SECTION II - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: Macrobid® is a 100 mg opaque black and yellow gelatin capsule. It contains 2 plugs, one yellow, the second a mottled off-white to light yellow in color. Material is intended for use as a human pharmaceutical. Accidental excessive ingestion may cause gastrointestinal effects, skin, hypersensitivity reactions, hematological , neurological, liver and pulmonary effects. Hazard and Toxicological information is based on the active pharmaceutical ingredients. Eye: As a capsule, unlikely to come into contact with eye. If powder from crushed or pulverized capsule cores contacts eyes, unknown effect from direct contact by material. Skin: As a capsule, unlikely to come into prolonged contact with skin. Prolonged contact with powder from crushed or pulverized capsule cores may cause skin irritation. Ingestion: Accidental excessive ingestion may cause gastrointestinal effects, skin, hypersensitivity reactions, hematological , neurological, liver and pulmonary effects. Inhalation: As a capsule, unlikely to be inhaled. If powder from crushed or pulverized capsule core is inhaled, may be irritating to upper respiratory tract. Reproductive Hazard? Reversible alterations in spermatogenesis in male rats. Refer to Toxicological Section XI. Carcinogenic Hazard? IARC classifies nitrofurantoin as a Group 3 carcinogen (not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity in humans) based on “inadequate” data in humans and “limited” data in animals (IARC, 1990). See Section XI for additional carcinogenicity information. Medical Conditions Aggravated by Gastrointestinal, pulmonary, hypersensitivity reaction, skin, Exposure or Target Organ Systems: hemolytic anemia. Cases of hemolytic anemia of the primaquine- sensitivity type have been induced by nitrofurantoin. Hemolysis appears to be linked to a glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in the red blood cells of the affected patients. Hemolysis is an indication for discontinuing nitrofurantoin; hemolysis ceases when the drug is withdrawn. Target Organ Systems: Liver, lungs, nervous system. Procter & Gamble

Special Instructions As with all fires, evacuate personnel to safe area. Firefighters should use self- contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. SECTION VI - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personnel Safeguards: Wear gloves to avoid contact with skin and eyes when handling/counting large amounts of capsules. Wash thoroughly after handling. Environmental Precautions: Dispose of all collected material in accordance with applicable local, state and federal waste disposal regulations (see Section XIII). Spill Clean-up Procedures: If capsules are broken and the core is crushed or pulverized, cordon off the area. Take proper precautions to minimize exposure by using appropriate personal protective equipment. Wet material with water to reduce potential for dust generation and soak up material with absorbent, e.g., paper towels. Wash spill area thoroughly with soap and water.

Acute Inhalation Effects: Not available Chronic Effects: Pulmonary, liver, and nervous system. Sub-Chronic Effects: Pulmonary, liver, and nervous system. Reproductive and Doses of 10 mg/kg/day or greater, higher than therapeutic doses, in Birth Effects: healthy human males may produce a slight to moderate decrease in sperm count. The administration of high doses (10 mg/kg/day) of nitrofurantoin to rats causes reversible spermatogenic arrest. Several reproduction studies have been performed in rabbits and rats at doses up to six times the human dose and have revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to nitrofurantoin. In a single published study conducted in mice at 68 times the human dose, growth retardation and a low incidence of minor and common malformations were observed. However, at 25 times the human dose, fetal malformations were not observed; the relevance of these findings to humans is uncertain. Genetic Toxicity: Nitrofurantoin has produced positive results in Ames Assay in the presence and absence of a liver activating system. Nitrofurantoin induced increased numbers of sister chromatid exchanges and chromosomal aberrations in Chinese hamster ovary cells but not in human cells in culture. Results of the sex-linked recessive lethal assay in Drosphila were negative after administration of nitrofurantoin by feeding or by injection. Nitrofurantoin did not induce heritable mutation in the rodent models examined. Carcinogenicity: Nitrofurantoin presented evidence of carcinogenic activity in female B6C3F1 mice as shown by increased incidences of tubular adenomas, benign mixed tumors, and granulose cell tumors of the ovary. In male F344/N rats, there were increased incidences of uncommon kidney tubular cell neoplasms, osteosarcomas of the bone, and neoplasms of the subcutaneous tissue. In one study involving subcutaneous administration of 75 mg/kg nitrofurantoin to pregnant female mice, lung papillary adenomas of unknown significance were observed in the F1 generation.
