Information on toxicological effectsAcute toxicity:Harmful if inhaled.Harmful if swallowed.LD/LC50 values that are relevant for classification: No dataSkin irritation or corrosion: Irritant to skin and mucous membranes.Eye irritation or corrosion: Irritating effect.Sensitization: No sensitizing effects known.Germ cell mutagenicity: No effects known.Carcinogenicity:EPA-D: Not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity: inadequate human and animal evidence of carcinogenicity or no data are available.EPA-NL: Not likely to be carcinogenic to humans.ACGIH A4: Not classifiable as a human carcinogen: Inadequate data on which to classify the agent in terms of its carcinogenicity in humans and/or animals.Reproductive toxicity: No effects known.Specific target organ system toxicity - repeated exposure: No effects known.Specific target organ system toxicity - single exposure: No effects known.Aspiration hazard: No effects known.Subacute to chronic toxicity:Barium compounds may cause severe gastroenteritis, including abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea, tremors, faintness, paralysis of the arms and legs, and slowor irregular heartbeat. Severe cases may produce collapse and death due to respiratory failure. Soluble barium compounds are more likely to cause these effectsthan insoluble compounds. Inhalation of fumes may cause sore throat, coughing, labored breathing, and irritation of the respiratory tract as well as the abovesymptoms.Subacute to chronic toxicity: No effects known.Subacute to chronic toxicity:Exposure to nitrites may cause nausea, vomiting, cyanosis, and collapse into a coma. Small doses cause a fall in blood pressure, rapid pulse, muscle weakness,headache and visual disturbances.Additional toxicological information: To the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is not fully known.
