22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S6
Summary: Low acute toxicity to mammals but may have chronic long term effects.
Details:
Poison schedule - S6
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - 1400 mg/kg (rats), 400 mg/kg (rabbits) [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - >2000-6000 mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin - Irritant
Eye - Irritant.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - 10 mg/kg/day for two years. Lifetime feeding of 100-125 mg/kg/day reduced growth in rats, caused abnormalities in leg long bones with partial paralysis. 50mg/kg/day for 2 months reduced overall fertility in rats.
Ziram is mutagenic. 5.9% of workers with high occupational exposure (averaging 1.95-3.7 mg/m3) for 3-5 years had changes in the chromosomes of cultured lymphocytes compared to 0.75% in controls.
Classed as a group 3 carcinogen which means there is not enough evidence to be sure of its status.
No evidence of teratogenicity reported.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) - 0.01 mg/kg/day.

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Irritates eyes, skin and respiratory system.
Swallowing can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, stupor, abnormal reflexes, loss of consciousness and possible death. Effects may be delayed.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Give water to drink. If more than 15 minutes from hospital then induce vomiting preferably using Ipecac Syrup APF. Avoid giving alcohol. Harmful if swallowed. See a doctor.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. Urgently see a doctor. Take patient to hospital.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water. If irritation persists then see a doctor.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Keep at rest and warm. If breathing is laboured or patient is blue (cyanotic), check airways are clear, give oxygen. If breathing has stopped apply artificial respiration. If heart has stopped apply external cardiac massage. See a doctor.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. Effects may be delayed.
