Health hazard

Acute health effects

This product is a poisonous bait for the control of rabbits. It consists of chopped carrot

containing 0.018% sodium fluoroacetate (1080). The potentially toxic dose for humans has

been reported at a range of levels from 0.5 to 10 mg/kg. Based on the lowest known lethal

dose for humans (0.71 mg/kg), an 80 kg person would need to consume 316 grams of this

material to receive a lethal dose; however, lower doses may still have toxic effects.

Symptoms

Effects usually appear within 30 minutes of exposure but may be delayed as long as 20

hours. Caution is advised and vital signs should be monitored closely.

Onset of symptoms is usually insidious. They include feelings of apprehension, auditory

hallucinations, tingling sensation of the nose, facial twitching and numbness and other

central nervous system effects. They can also include nausea and vomiting.

As poisoning progresses, symptoms include muscular twitching, loss of speech, dilation of

pupils and cyanosis. They then progress to grand mal type epileptiform convulsions, with

the patient eventually lapsing into a coma and dying.

Heart failure and depression of breathing and the vasomotor system can cause death.

As speedy treatment is essential if poisoning is suspected,

seek medical attention

immediately.

Exposure routes

Digestive system

Sodium fluoroacetate is highly toxic and may be

harmful if swallowed

The poison is easily absorbed from the bait in the digestive system—symptoms of

poisoning are delayed for up to a few hours.

1080 carrot baits for rabbits—material safety data sheet

Contact with treated carrot may be a biohazard.

Eye

The active ingredient is not hazardous in this formulation, but contact with treated carrot

may be a biohazard.

Skin

The active ingredient is not hazardous in this formulation, but contact with treated carrot

may be a biohazard.

Respiratory system

The active ingredient is not an inhalation hazard in this formulation, but contact with

treated carrot may be a biohazard.

Chronic health effects

No specific data is available for symptoms of chronic exposure of humans to the product.

Considered toxic by all exposure routes.

Principal route of exposure is by ingestion.

Microscopic changes in heart and testicular material have been observed in rats dosed at or

above 0.25 mg of sodium fluoroacetate per kilogram of body weight per day. Studies on

rats have shown sperm pathology, decreased size and weight of testes and epididymides in

males, and dose-related increases in absolute and relative heart weights in females.

The US EPA has set a reference dose (RfD) of 0.00002 mg/kg/day.

The materials in this product are not considered to be carcinogenic by the WorkSafe

Australia lists (October 1991).

First aid

For ingestion

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor immediately or phone the poisons information centre

on 131 126. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing. Transport to hospital without

delay.

For eye contact

Immediately hold the eyes open and wash continuously for at least 15 minutes with fresh

running water. Irrigate under eyelids by lifting the upper and lower lids.

Do not

attempt to

remove contact lenses unless trained.

For skin contact

Remove contaminated clothing and footwear. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.

For inhalation

This formulation cannot be inhaled; however, contact with treated carrot may be a

biohazard.

Advice to doctor

There is no effective known antidote for sodium fluoroacetate, but symptomatic treatment

may be effective.

If the poison has been swallowed, commence stomach washing followed by saline catharsis

as soon as possible. If the time that has elapsed since ingestion is unknown, or is suspected

to be more than 30 minutes, do not induce vomiting. Induce vomiting only if the victim is

alert, has an active gag-reflex, and shows no signs of impending seizure or coma. Activated

charcoal may be administered if the victim is conscious and alert.

If victim has experienced eye or skin contact, proceed with saline catharsis. Administer

oxygen or artificial respiration as required. Give barbiturate therapy for convulsions, and

monitor heart conditions closely.

Treatment with glyceryl monoacetate (monoacetin) or other acetate sources may be

effective but is experimental and unproven in humans. Glyceryl monoacetate oral dose: 100

mL in 500 ml water. Glyceryl monoacetate intramuscular injection: 0.1 - 0.5 mL/kg body

mass. Repeat above dose as indicated.

Precautions for use

Exposure standards

Time weighted average (active ingredient) (TWA) = 0.05 mg/m

Short term exposure limit (active ingredient) (STEL) = 0.15 mg/m

Exposure value at the TWA is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance

when calculated over a normal 8-hour working day for a 5-day working week.

Exposure value at the STEL is a level that should not be exceeded for more than 15

minutes, and should not be repeated more than four times daily. There should be at least 60

minutes between successive exposures at STEL.

Engineering controls

Do not

handle directly.

Use tools to minimise exposure.

Use in a well-ventilated area.

Personal protection

All possibility of

contact

with product should be

completely eliminated

by use of

personal protective gear

When handling carrot baits treated with fluoroacetate wear:

cotton overalls and other protective clothing that covers torso, arms and legs

elbow-length PVC gloves
