||The enclosed information is being submitted under Section 8(e) CAP, because EPA may not have been aware of all of the results summarized in these documents at the time they were issued. For example, the acute toxicity data may not have been known to EPA in 1977. These data show epichlorohydrin to be moderately toxic via inhalation resulting in cyanosis followed by muscular relaxation of the extremities. Similar effects were observed following oral, dermal, and subcutaneous exposures. Epichlorohydrin was also reported to be irritating and to produce dermatitis and allergic skin reactions.
