Inhalation
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2‐4 cupfuls water or milk to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting. NEVER give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention if irritation or symptoms appear.
Skin Contact
In case of contact, flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothes and shoes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical attention immediately.
Other Information
For methemoglobinemia, administer oxygen alone or with Methylene Blue depending on the methemoglobin concentration in the blood.Antidote: Methylene Blue, alone or in combination with oxygen is indicated as a treatment in nitrite induced methemoglobinemia.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Acute effects
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Chronic inhalation and ingestion may cause effects similar to those of acute inhalation and ingestion. Prolong exposure may cause anemia and methemoglobinemia, characterised by dizziness, drowsiness, headache, breath shortness, cyanosis (bluish skin due to deficient oxygenation of the blood), rapid heart rate and chocolate‐brown coloured blood. Chronic exposure can affect thyroid function. May cause pituitary gland abnormalities.
Eye contact
May cause eye irritation.
Skin contact
May cause skin irritation. May be absorbed through the skin in harmful amounts. May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re‐exposure to this material. If absorbed, causes symptoms similar to those of ingestion.
Ingestion
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May cause methemoglobinemia, cyanosis (bluish discoloration of skin due to deficient oxygenation of the blood), convulsions, and death. Methemoglobinemia is characterised by dizziness, drowsiness, headache, shortness of breath, cyanosis (bluish discoloration of skin due to deficient oxygenation of the blood), rapid heart rate and chocolate‐brown coloured blood. Exposure may cause anaemia and other blood abnormalities
Inhalation
May cause respiratory tract irritation. May cause methemoglobinemia, cyanosis (bluish discoloration of skin due to deficient oxygenation of the blood), convulsions, tachycardia, dyspnea (laboured breathing), and death. May cause effects similar to those described for ingestion. Methemoglobinemia is characterised by dizziness, drowsiness, headache, shortness of breath, cyanosis (bluish discoloration of skin due to deficient oxygenation of the blood), rapid heart rate and chocolate‐ brown blood.
Toxicity and irritation
Group 2B: Possibly carcinogenic to humans.
