||Given the similar toxicities of benomyl and carbendazim (methyl 2-benzimidazolylcarbamate, the main metabolite of benomyl in mammals), the two fungicides are evaluated together in this monograph. No adverse effects on human health have been reported. Both substances represent a very low risk for acute poisoning in humans; benomyl causes dermal sensitization. Animal data and the limited human data available indicate that it is unlikely that these substances would cause systemic toxicity effects in occupationally exposed subjects. Detailed summaries in French and Spanish.
