Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea, vomiting and possible burns. May be harmful if swallowed. Exposure may cause central nervous system depression, gastrointestinal and cardiac abnormalities. Sulfite compunds may cause a sever allergic reaction in sensitive individuals.
May cause asthmatic attacks due to allergic sensitization of the respiratory tract. May cause effects similar to those described for ingestion. May cause severe respiratory tract irritation and possible burns.
May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material. May cause severe skin irritation with possible burns, especially if skin is wet or moist. May cause allergic contact dermatitis.
Contact with eyes may cause severe irritation, and possible eye burns. May cause eye injury.
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately.
