||This report is a translation of a report finalized in December 1993. Main conclusions: cases of acute poisoning have been reported following oral uptake of 4-chloro-3-methylphenol (chlorocresol) in humans; animal studies indicate that the substance is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, lung and skin, and is corrosive to the eyes; chlorocresol is non-sensitizing in humans; laboratory studies give no indication of a mutagenic effect.
