ABSTRACT
The article describes five events of acute pesticide poisoning with pyraclostrobin in Iowa in 2007. Pyraclostrobin is an agricultural pesticide used to kill fungi but is harmful to human. In July, the Iowa Department of Helth (IDOH) received five reports of pyraclostrobin exposure across that state which sickened several people. Upon investigation, IDOH identified pyraclostrobin on-site. The article offers ideas on preventing additional illnesses associated with pyraclostrobin exposure.
