DANGER/PELIGRO

PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS

HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND DOMESTIC ANIMALS

DANGER: Powder is corrosive. Causes irreversible eye damage or skin burns. Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Wear goggles (or face shield). Wear protective clothing (long sleeve shirt and long pants, socks plus shoes and chemical resistant gloves such as water proof gloves). Wash hands before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco or using the toilet. Remove contaminated clothing and wash clothing before reuse.

Corrosive statement refers to powder only not in use-diluted solution.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS:

Do not discharge effluent containing this product into lakes, streams, ponds, estuaries, oceans or other waters unless in accordance with the requirements of a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit and the permitting authority has been notified in writing prior to discharge. Do not discharge effluent containing this product to sewer systems without previously notifying the local sewage treatment plant authority. For guidance, contact your State Water Board or Regional Office of the EPA.

BROAD SPECTRUM DISINFECTANT:

Virkon™ S is effective against numerous microorganisms affecting animals: viruses*, gram positive and gram negative bacteria, fungi and mycoplasma (spp. gallisepticum & hyopneumonia).

Efficacy of the 1% solution against bacteria and viruses* was determined in the presence of 400 ppm (200 ppm in California) AOAC hard water and 5% organic material in most cases. The exceptions are noted with qualifiers, e.g., “no hard water,” “1% soil load,” and “use 2% solution”. Refer to Pathogen list for specific contact times and dilution rates.

This product has demonstrated effectiveness against influenza A virus and is expected to inactivate all influenza A viruses including Pandemic 2009 H1N1 influenza A virus*.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL:

Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage and disposal.

PESTICIDE STORAGE: For pails, jugs, bottles: Store in a cool dry place in tightly closed container. Keep out of reach of children. Always replace lid after use. Retain desiccant canister with product during storage. Do not mix this product with other chemicals.

For sachet, pouch, packet, bag: Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of reach of children. Retain desiccant canister with product during storage. Do not mix this product with other chemicals.

For spray bottle with in-use solution: Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of reach of children. Do not mix this product with other chemicals.

PESTICIDE DISPOSAL: Pesticide wastes may be hazardous. Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixture, or rinsate is a violation of Federal Law. If these wastes cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, contact your State Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency, or the Hazardous Waste Representative at the nearest EPA Regional Office for guidance.

CONTAINER DISPOSAL: Nonrefillable container. Do not reuse or refill this container. Completely empty liner by shaking and tapping sides and bottom to loosen clinging particles. Empty residue into application equipment. Triple rinse container (or equivalent) promptly after emptying. Triple rinse as follows: Empty the remaining contents into application equipment or a mix tank. Fill the container 1/4 full with water and recap. Shake for 10 seconds. Pour rinsate into application equipment or a mix tank or store rinsate for later use or disposal. Drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Repeat this procedure two more times. Then offer for recycling or reconditioning, or puncture and dispose of in a sanitary landfill, or, if allowed by state and local authorities, by burning. If burned, stay out of smoke.
