On October 21, 1977 at about 3:15 P.M. the person began to break out with large red splotches and then raised whelps on the right side of his torso and beneath his right arm above the elbow. One spot was on the top side of the right forearm. The reaction did not reach the swelling stage and all evidence had disappeared within an hour. Attempts were made to contact the company director who was not available due to other emergencies. No medical treatment was administered. Employee was observed until it was sure that all symptoms of the attack had subsided.
