Vapour inhalation - LC50 - >5.6 mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
Carcinogenicity - An incidence of liver tumours was noted in long-term studies with kresoxim-methyl in rodents. As the mechanism involved is not relevant to humans, and the dose levels were very high, the potential carcinogenic risk to humans in considered negligible.

Nausea and vomiting

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water and give a glass of water to drink. Never give anything to drink to an unconscious person.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.
