||Outbreak of Omite-CR-induced dermatitis among orange pickers in Tulare County, California
||May 1987, Vol.29, No.5, p.409-413. Illus. 6 ref.
||An outbreak of dermatitis cases among 198 orange pickers employed by a Tulare County, California, packinghouse was investigated. Dermatitis was contracted by 114 (58%) of the 198 workers exposed when Omite-CR-treated fields were harvested. The dermatitis occurred predominantly in the exposed areas of the neck and chest. A dose-response association with dermatitis was suggested for Omite-CR (Propargite) exposure, but not for Carzol, Omite-CR + Carzol, or other pesticides. Because no violations of pesticide preharvest intervals or application rates were found, it appears that residue degradation was not given adequate consideration in the registration of Omite-CR, thus compromising the safety of the worker.
