Reproductive Toxicity

Wear respirator, chemical safety goggles, rubber gloves and boots.


Sweep up, place in a bag and hold for waste disposal or possible re-use.

Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pick up is complete.

Avoid bodily contact.

Keep containers tightly closed.


Keep in a well-ventilated place away from incompatible materials (see "materials to avoid").

Provide adequate ventilation




Dust respirator


Protective gloves


Chemical safety goggles


Body covering clothes and boots


Safety shower and eye wash should be provided.

Do not eat, drink or smoke where material is handled, processed or stored. Wash hands carefully before eating or smoking.

4200 mg/kg


>2000 mg/kg


Slight irritant


Not an irritant

Repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis.

Repeated oral intake of bromides (>9 mg/kg body weight/day) may affect the central nervous system. Warning symptoms may include mental dullness, slurred speech, weakened memory, apathy, anorexia, constipation, drowsiness and loss of sensitivity to touch and pain.


Does not induce DNA repair in cultured epithelioid cells.

Not clastogenic in human lymphocytes metaphase analysis.

Not mutagenic in the Ames Test.


Not classified by IARC.

Not included in NTP 11th report on carcinogens.


Sodium bromide has been shown to cause embryo-fetal toxicity and malformations in rats at dose levels which also produce maternal toxicity. The No-Observed Effect Level (NOEL) is 100 mg/kg/day, and the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for sodium bromide from food and drinking water in humans is 1 mg/kg/day. Comparable high doses of sodium chloride (table salt) similarly causes malformations, embryo-fetal toxicity and maternal toxicity in mice.

*Notice: Sodium bromide used in conjunction with a bromine generator in spas MUST be registered with the EPA. In addition,

using products such as algaecides and shocks --even with an EPA registration-- for anything other than it's intended purpose, is a violation of the EPA FIFRA regulations.
