On June 12, 2013 consumer reported that while spraying product near her door on June 8, she tasted some of the product in her mouth so she assumed the spray got onto her face. She denies experiencing any symptoms with her eye at the time. At the time of exposure, however, she gargled with water and applied artificial tears to her eyes. She states that on the following day, she had pain and redness in her eye. The consumer reports that she suffers from a chronic form of leukemia and has a history of problems with here eyes, particularly dry eyes. She also has a history of seasonal allergies. She continued to treat herself with OTC eye drops as well as Benadryl. After follow-up with the consumer on June 14, it was discovered the she saw a physician on June 13 where she was diagnosed with inflammation that the physician thought may have been caused by the Raid. She was prescribed prescription antibiotic eye drops.

The information contained in this report is based on self-reported statements provided to the registrant during telephone Interview(s). These self-reported descriptions of an incident have not been independently verified to be factually correct or complete descriptions of the incident. For that reason, information contained in this report does not and can not form the basis for a determination of whether the reported clinical effects are causally related to exposure to the product identified in the telephone interviews. It is unclear with the history provided exactly how eye exposure to this product may have occurred. The patient's clinical course is atypical. Typically, if eye exposure to insecticide spray occurs, immediate eye irritation occurs. Such eye irritation is typically transient in nature and abates within 1-2 hours following decontamination. It does not appear that this patient ever pursued proper irrigation of the eye if she believes an actual exposure occurred.
