We are using chlor-clean in hospital for all cleans not just vre. Numerous staff have complained of swelling to their faces rashes and burning sensation to their lungs. Has anyone else had issues with this substance?

Information that i've gathered indicates that Chlor-Clean has an "Acute Hazard Warning Label" that is marked as "level 1" -aka- containing highly toxic substance(s).

The U.S. EPA gives a warning label of Category 1 to the most acutely toxic pesticide products and Category 4 to the least acutely toxic pesticide products.

The U.S. EPA (1) restricts use of some pesticide products because they are acutely toxic to humans or beneficial insects; have been shown to cause worker illnesses, groundwater contamination, bird or fish kills; or their drift damages other crops. RUPs can be used only by certified and licensed applicators, and then only under specific conditions.

NOTE: this is referring to the cleaner product that is used in a number of hospitals.
@m1, do they have tablets of this horrible stuff as well? I'd hope not.

In any case, I hope the above information helps address the potential dangers of Chlor-Clean!

Hi, I have used Chlor clean working in a hospital and I have recently being diagnosed with lung cancer I'm 37 years old and I have never smoked and I have always said since using this stuff it's got to be bad. I am very lucky because it was picked up by accident because I had an MRI for something else. I honestly believe it's from Chlor clean use. I am trying get as much info to spread the word it's deadly poison.

I too work at the hospital and I am suffering from respiratory problems, we use this horrible chloraclean all the time, I was in intensive care a few years ago with double pneumonia, on life support, I am still to this day having breathing problems and headaches and I think the fumes from this chemical is causing more problems, ive never had breathing problems like this and its so worrying.

Hi, I worked in a hospital and used this product for about two years.
Since I started singing (a year into my two years at the hospital) I have had no end of problems with my throat. I wake up in the middle of the night or in the morning with a burning sensation that brings tears to my eyes when I swallow, tightness and excess of saliva at times. I did not drink (only cola) and now I can't even have coffee regularly without it irritating my throat.
I can't say that these things are connected but if anyone else is having a similar issue it might make them think more about it.
Also, I went to my GP and he said it was "acid reflux" which I'm pretty sure it isn't. Acid reflux is a good cover all diagnosis for any throat pain. The medicine he gave me didn't help sooth/ fix the problem and systematically the problem comes back.
I feel like the lining of my throat may have been damaged by inhaling Chlorclean daily for two years.
