1-27308776-The reporter indicated exposure to an herbicide containing the active ingredient diquat dibromide and a surfactant product containing the active ingredient Nonylphenoxy polyethoxy ethanol. The reporter indicated an adult male companion (relationship not clarified) had splashed the two products in either one or both eyes immediately prior to the report while mixing these products. He was reported to have rinsed his eyes for approximately five minutes and had gone to the hospital due to persistent irritation. The caller was advised of proper decontamination and the threshold at which medical advice should be sought. She was advised no harm beyond the irritation described would be expected, but that decontamination should be thorough. On follow up one day later the reporter was able to verify the patient was 'fine'. She indicated he had gone to the hospital but was unable to convey what treatment or diagnostics were done. No further follow up was obtained. No further information is available.
