Stannous Chloride

Return to Listing
Report No.:  31
Type of Conclusion:  1
ID Code:  7772-99-8
Year:  1974
CFR Section:  184.1845
SCOGS Opinion:  Feeding tests of stannous chloride on several species of animals, including observations on carcinogen icty and teratogenicity, at dosage levels significantly above those present in the daily diet, did not reveal evidence that this compound is harmful. Human experience gained after the accidental ingestion of large amounts of tin containing materials or experimental intravenous injection of such materials reinforces this conclusion. In the light of the foregoing, the Select committee concludes that: There is no evidence in the available information on stannous chloride that demonstrates, or suggests reasonable grounds to suspect, a hazard to the public when it is used at levels that are now current or that might reasonably be expected in future.
