Symptoms of trichloroisocyanuric acid poisoning

Posted on May 26, 2015 10:18 am under Product Liability

Recently, there are reports about a major poultry recall in Wisconsin due to possible trichloro-s-trazinetrione contamination of about 2,191 pounds of chicken and 21 pounds of turkey products. Trichloro-s-trazinetrione, sometimes called trichloroisocyanuric acid, is a bactericide and algaecide used in hot tubs and swimming pools, and is never approved for poultry use.

Ingesting large amount of trichloroisocyanuric acid could be toxic. As such, it is important to call a physician at once for proper medical attention. Also, remember to not induce vomiting, as this may further damage the gastrointestinal tract. Ingestion of trichloroisocyanuric acid is accompanied by a burning sensation in the mouth, shock or collapse, and abdominal pain.
