1-32991687 - The reporter indicated that her husband was exposed to an insecticidal product containing the active ingredients pyrethrins. Per the reporter her husband applied approximately 10 squirts of the product on some bugs in the lower area of the home approximately 2.5 hours prior to initial contact with the registrant. During product application there was a fan blowing in the area and although no dermal, ocular or product inhalation was noted by the patient at the time of product application the reporter indicates that the fan may have blown mist back at her husband s face. About one hour after application her husband began complaining of nasal swelling and congestion, numb lips, eye irritation and blurred vision. At the time of initial contact the patient had already irrigated his eyes for a period of 10 minutes and had moved away from the fumes. The reporter was advised that the product may potentially cause transient irritation by all routes when there is direct contact to the wet product or inhalation of the product. Medical attention was recommended for any persistent or worsening symptoms. No further information is available.
