||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in August 1993: monochloroacetic acid causes irritation, burning (with blister formation) and corrosion on contact with human skin; similar damage is to be expected on contact with the eyes. The substance is rapidly absorbed through the skin and, if a sufficiently large area of the skin is contaminated, can lead to breathing difficulties, convulsions, vomiting, shock and death.
