||The Montreal Protocol of 1996 called for the elimination of certain halogenated hydrocarbons, namely chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), due to their detrimental effects on the environment, including ozone layer depletion and global warming. However, these substitution products have been responsible in recent years for a number of poisonings, including fatal poisonings. This article reviews cases reported in literature on poisonings from CFC substitutes, and concludes that it is necessary to improve our understanding of the hazards associated with these chemicals.
