Potential Health Effects
Causes eye irritation. Vapors may cause eye irritation.
May cause skin irritation. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause
drying and cracking of the skin.

May cause irritation of the digestive tract. Ingestion of large
amounts may cause central nervous depression. May cause headache,
nausea, fatigue, and dizziness.
These effects may be caused in part by ethanol which is released when
ethyl acetate is broken down in the body.
May cause respiratory tract irritation. Inhalation of high
concentrations may cause narcotic effects. May be harmful if inhaled.
Chronic inhalation may cause effects similar to those of acute
Animals exposed to 4300 ppm (mice) and 2000 ppm (guinea pig), 6
hours/day for 7 days developed minor blood changes & loss of
appetite. There was no indication of liver or kidney injury. Rabbits
exposed to 16000 mg/m3 (4440 ppm), 1 hour/day for 40 days developed
secondary anemia (decreased number of red blood cells), decreased
hemoglobin levels, increased numbers of macrophages, congestion and
fatty degeneration of various organs, and enlargement of the spleen.
A reviewer suggested that the organ damage may have been due to
impurities present in the ethyl
