Weed Science–Univ. Florida, Davie–Herbicide labeling and application Page 2 1. The pesticide label Pesticide Label Format (Adapted from the EPA “Label Review Manual,” http://www.epa.gov/oppfead1/labeling/lrm/chap-03.htm ) These are the sections of the label in the approximate order on a label. A. Front Panel 1. Restricted Use Pesticide Statement 2. Product Name, Brand or Trademark . Identifying information; the “Type of Product” (e.g., “Herbicide for controlling annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds in lawns” is usually included here as well). 3. Ingredient Statement The name and the percentage by weight of each active ingredient and the percentage by weight of other/inert ingredients. 4. " Keep Out of Reach of Children" (KOOROC) Statement. This specific statement, which is commonly referred to as the KOOROC statement ("child hazard warning"), appears on almost all end use pesticide products. 5. Signal Word. Signal words that correspond to the toxicity categories for product hazards 6. First Aid. A first aid statement must appear on the front panel of all pesticides assigned to Toxicity Category I by any route of exposure, but the agency may allow reasonable variations in the placement of the statement. The front panel must include a reference such as “See First Aid statement on back panel” near the word “poison” and the skull and crossbones if the Agency allows the first aid information to appear on the back panel. First Aid statements for pesticides of other Toxicity Categories may appear on any panel of the label. 7. " Skull & Crossbones" Symbol and the word "POISON " Labels of pesticides that contain substances in quantities highly toxic to man must include a skull and crossbones and the word “poison” prominently in red on a background of distinctly contrasting color.
