AMVAC CHEMICAL CORPORATION Page 2 of 10 DIBROM® 8 EMULSIVE Legion™ Insecticide (High Flash) AMVAC MSDS No.: 254_8 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: DANGER! POISON! CORROSIVE! An off-white to straw yellow liquid with a sharp, pungent odor that causes irreversible eye and skin damage. May be fatal if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin and eyes. Is a cholinesterase inhibitor. Rapidly absorbed through skin. Repeated inhalation or skin contact may, without symptoms, progressively increase susceptibility to organophosphate (including Naled) poisoning. May be an aspiration hazard. May cause an allergic reaction. Product is combustible. Toxic to fish, birds, and other wildlife. POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS ROUTE(S) OF ENTRY: May be fatal if absorbed through the eye or skin, is ingested or is inhaled.
May produce acute cholinesterase depression. May cause corrosive destruction of the skin,mucous membranes and the eyes. SIGNS OF ACUTE OVEREXPOSURE: Acute cholinesterase depression may be evidenced by
headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, excessive sweating, salivation andtearing, constricted pupils, blurred vision, tightness in chest, weakness, muscle twitchingand confusion; in extreme cases, unconsciousness, convulsions, severe respiratorydepression and death may occur. This product is expected to be corrosive to the eyes. The degree of injury will depend on theamount and duration of the contact and the speed and thoroughness of the first aidtreatment. Expected adverse health effects resulting from direct exposure to the eye mayinclude pain, tears, swelling, redness, blurred vision, irreversible eye damage and possiblyblindness. This product is expected to be corrosive to the skin. The degree of injury will depend on theamount and duration of the contact and the speed and thoroughness of the first aidtreatment. The expected adverse health effects resulting from a direct exposure to the skinmay include pain or a feeling of heat, discoloration, swelling, blistering, and irreversibletissue damage. This product is expected to be corrosive to the digestive tract, and, if ingested, may causenausea, vomiting and diarrhea. This product is expected to be corrosive to the respiratory tract, and, if inhaled, may causesymptoms that include nasal discharge, sore throat, coughing, bronchitis, pulmonary edema,and difficulty in breathing. SIGNS OF CHRONIC OVEREXPOSURE: Repeated exposures to small doses of Naled and other
organophosphates may lower the cholinesterase to levels where the above symptoms ofacute overexposure are observed.
AMVAC CHEMICAL CORPORATION Page 3 of 10 DIBROM® 8 EMULSIVE Legion™ Insecticide (High Flash) AMVAC MSDS No.: 254_8 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION, cont'd CARCINOGENICITY: EPA under its 1999 proposed Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment has
classified DDVP, an impurity in Naled, as having "suggestive evidence of carcinogenicity, but not sufficient to assess human carcinogenic potential.". IARC lists DDVP (Dichlorvos) as being possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). CARE SHOULD BE EXERCISED IN HANDLING THIS FORMULATION. MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Preexisting conditions which lower
cholinesterase levels increase vulnerability to cholinesterase depression. These include: (forplasma) genetic cholinesterase deficiency; advanced liver disease; chronic alcoholism;malnutrition; dermatomyositis; existing toxicity from exposure to carbon disulfide;benzalkonium salts, organic mercury compounds, ciguatoxins or solanines; and (for RBC)hemolytic anemias. FIRST AID MEASURES DIBROM® 8 Emulsive CONTAINS A CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITOR (NALED). A PHYSICIAN SHOULD BE CONTACTED IN ALL CASES OF EXPOSURE TO NALED AND ITS FORMULATIONS. THIS PRODUCT IS CORROSIVE TO EYES AND SKIN. EYES: Immediately flush the eyes with copious amounts of clear, cool running water for a minimum
of 15 minutes. Hold the eyelids apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing of the entiresurface of the eyes and lids with water. Contact a physician immediately. If there will be adelay in getting medical attention, rinse the eyes for at least another 15 minutes. INHALATION: Remove victim to fresh air. If breathing has ceased, clear the victim's airway and
start mouth-to-mouth artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Contact aphysician immediately. INGESTION: DO NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious, administer an 8 oz. glass of water
containing 2 tbsp. activated charcoal. Have person lie on their left side to slow downabsorption of the ingested material. Never give anything by mouth to an unconsciousperson. Contact a physician immediately. SKIN: Immediately flush all affected areas with large amounts of clear water for at least 15 minutes.
Remove contaminated clothing. Do not attempt to neutralize with chemical agents. Washclothing before reuse. Contact a physician immediately. NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: This is an Organophosphate (OP) Insecticide. Do not wait for laboratory
confirmation to treat patients with strong clinical evidence of poisoning. In the USA and other countries, contact your local or national poison control center for more information. Do Not handle the patient without the following protective equipment in place: chemical resistant gloves and apron (preferably nitrile). Remove contaminated clothing and do not reuse without thorough cleaning with detergent and hot water. Dispose of heavily contaminated clothing, including shoes, as a hazardous waste. AMVAC CHEMICAL CORPORATION Page 4 of 10 DIBROM® 8 EMULSIVE Legion™ Insecticide (High Flash) AMVAC MSDS No.: 254_8 FIRST AID MEASURES, cont'd
Establish airway and oxygenation. IV Atropine sulfate is the antidote of choice. Moderatelysevere poisoning: use 0.4-2.0 mg in adults or 0.05 mg/kg in children. Repeat every 15minutes until atropinization is achieved. Severe poisoning may require larger doses. Cholinergic toxicity may recur as atropinization wears off; monitor patient closely. Drawblood for RBC and plasma cholinesterase. In addition, Pralidoxime (2-PAM) is indicatedduring the first 36 hours in severe poisonings. Slow IV administration (no less than 2minutes) of 1 gm in adults or 20-50 mg/kg in children may be repeated in 1 to 2 hours if muscleweakness, twitching, and/or respiratory depression persist. Avoid morphine, aminophylline,phenothiazines, reserpine, furosemide and ethacrynic acid. Bathe and shampoo contaminated skin and hair. If ingested, empty stomach. Due to thepresence of aromatic solvents, gastric lavage should be considered following intubation witha cuffed endotracheal tube to prevent aspiration of vomitus. Activated charcoal is useful tofurther limit absorption.
