DIRECTIONS FOR USE

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Export of treated produce

Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for edible

produce treated with Mesurol. If you are growing edible produce for export, please check

with Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances

BEFORE using Mesurol.

PRECAUTION

Avoid application of pellets to foliage of edible crops. Store in original container. Lock in

a safe place preventing access of children, animals, poultry or ducks. Keep away from

domestic pets. Keep away from dogs. Dogs find this bait attractive and it may kill them.

If pets are poisoned, contact a veterinary surgeon.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

After filling applicator, clean up spilled pellets so that they are not eaten by animals and

birds. Dogs find this bait attractive and if ingested it may kill them. Do not heap as heaping

is unnecessary and such heaps could be eaten by dogs. If a dog eats pellets take it to a

veterinarian immediately. Do not give dogs Ipecac Syrup. Do not treat areas on which

poultry graze.

sunlight. Lock in a safe place preventing access of children, animals, poultry or ducks.

Keep away from domestic pets. Ensure plastic bag is completely empty before disposal.

Puncture and bury empty bag in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury

the bag below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose

clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty bags and product should

not be burnt.

Published on: Thu, 13 Dec 2018 The European Commission asked EFSA for a scientific evaluation on the risks to human health related to the presence of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in food. Regarding PFOS and PFOA occurrence, the final data set available for dietary exposure assessment contained a total of 20,019 analytical results (PFOS n = 10,191 and PFOA n = 9,828). There were large differences between upper and lower bound exposure due to analytical methods with i...
