advice. Have the person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to do so
after calling 800-888-8372 or by a poison control center or doctor. Do not give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person.
If in eyes: Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if
present, after 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Call Syngenta (800-888-8372), a poison control center or
doctor for treatment advice.
If on skin or clothing: Take off contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water.
If inhaled: Move person to fresh Not applicable.
Notes to Physician
Medical Condition Likely to be Aggravated by Exposure
As stated above this product contains anticoagulants with an effect similar to that of warfarin. The
anticoagulant interferes
with the synthesis of prothrombin. Significant exposure (e.g. ingestion) can cause anticoagulation effects and
could
aggravate existing blood clotting disorders.
Fire and Explosion
Unusual Fire, Explosion and Reactivity Hazards
During a fire, irritating and possibly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
In Case of Fire
Use dry chemical, foam or CO2 extinguishing media. Wear full protective clothing and self-contained
breathing apparatus.
Evacuate nonessential personnel from the area to prevent human exposure to fire, smoke, fumes or products
of combustion.
Prevent use of contaminated buildings, area, and equipment until decontaminated.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
In Case of Spill or Leak
Store the material in a well-ventilated, secure area out of reach of children and domestic animals. Do not
store food, beverages
or tobacco products in the storage area. Prevent eating, drinking, tobacco use, and cosmetic application in
areas where there is a
potential for exposure to the material. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling.
Control the spill at its source. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions outlined in Section 8. Sweep
up material
and place in a compatible disposal container. Once all material is collected, seal container and arrange for
disposition.
This product may reduce the clotting ability of the blood and cause hemorrhaging. If poisoning occurs,
intramuscular and
oral administration of Vitamin K1 are indicated, as in poisoning from overdose of bishydroxy coumarin. For
human cases,
Vitamin K1 is antidotal at doses of 10 - 20 mg (not mg/kg). For animal cases, Vitamin K1 is antidotal at 2 - 5
mg/kg.
Repeated doses may need to be given up to two weeks (based on monitoring of prothrombin time). In severe
cases, blood
transfusions may be necessary.
Further information is available from the Syngenta emergency number provided in this document.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Prevent eating, drinking, tobacco usage and cosmetic application in areas where there is a potential for
exposure to the material. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling.

Eye protection is not required for normal handling. Where eye contact is likely, wear tight-fitting chemical
goggles.
Gloves are not required for normal handling. Where heavy contact is likely, wear chemical resistant (such as
nitrile or butyl) gloves.
Respiratory protection is not required for normal handling. In the event of an unusual dust exposure, use
engineering controls or a NIOSH-certified particulate respirator (N, P, R or HE filter) to keep exposure
below the Occupational Exposure Limit.

Brodifacoum Technical: Not teratogenic, embryotoxic or fetotoxic in rats or rabbits at doses up to 0.02
mg/kg/day - the
dose causing excessive maternal toxicity.
Non-genotoxic in a range of assays.
Brodifacoum Technical: The biological half-life for brodifacoum in body tissue in rats is > 100 days. Adverse
clinical
effects can develop from body accumulation. Prolonged prothrombin time, depression, pallor, subcutaneous
hemorrhage,
bleeding of nose or gums, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, cerebral hemorrhage, shock and death can develop
following
exposures.
No neurotox studies have been conducted.

Other Toxicity Information
Effects of overexposure are those of anticoagulant overdose, i.e., reduced blood clotting ability with
spontaneous
bleeding in various organs. Body accumulation can result from repeated exposures since the half-life of
brodifacoum is >
100 days. Individuals with blood clotting disorders may be more susceptible to overexposure effects.
Systemically toxic concentrations of this product will probably not be absorbed through human skin.
No toxic effects are known to be associated with inhalation of dust from this material.
No irritation is likely to develop following contact with human eyes.
Irritation will probably not develop following contact with human skin.
