BASIS OF REEVALUATION
Data on file with DPR and literature in the public domain indicate that products containing maneb have the potential
to be human skin sensitizers. None of the products listed above bear a warning on their labels informing users
of the potential skin sensitization hazard.
Notice of Reevaluation
Skin sensitization (allergic contact dermatitis) is an immunological reaction of skin to a substance. In humans,
such reactions include severe itching, redness, swelling, inflamed spots, blisters, or a combination of these symptoms.
In the assessment and evaluation of the toxic characteristics of a pesticide product, determination of the products
potential to cause skin sensitization identifies potential hazards to humans repeatedly exposed to the pesticide.
For information please contact Ann Prichard, Senior Environmental Research Scientist, Pesticide Registration Branch,
