1-30068245- The reporter indicated a family member had been exposed to fungicidal seed treatment containing the active ingredients Metalaxyl-M and Fludioxonil. The reporter indicated his father may have gotten the product in his eye the week prior to his initial contact with the registrant. The caller did not clarify in what capacity the caller was working with the product. No discreet exposure was described. The caller made the inference that his father was exposed because he had noted his right eye had developed redness, irritation and selling within three days of the possible exposure. His father had been to an optometrist and prescribed an unnamed eye drop that had not provided relief. The caller was advised his family member should return to the doctor due to the severity and ongoing nature of the symptoms seen. On follow up six days later the reporter stated his father was seen by a physician and was diagnosed with shingles and his symptoms had resolved. The symptoms and diagnosis are inconsistent with the profile of the active ingredient and finished product. No further information is available.
