Abstract Conclusions of these criteria documents, translation of reports finalized in Aug. 1992 - Aug. 1993: animal studies indicate that butoxyethoxyethyl acetate (butyl carbitol acetate) has a low toxicity; contact dermatitis was observed in one case of occupational exposure, but only on affected skin which had been previously damaged. No data are available on the effects of 1,4-dimethoxybenzene or acetoacetyl-m-xylidide (N-(2,4-dimethylphenyl)-3-oxobutanoamide) or pigment red 53:1 (D&C red no.9) in man; animal studies indicate a low acute toxicity.
