Abstract

During July-December 1993, the Washington Department of Health (WDOH) received and conducted follow-up investigations of 26 reports of occupational illness related to exposure to mevinphos (Phosdrin), an organophosphate (OP) insecticide. The reports involved illnesses during June 13-August 18, 1993, in persons working in 19 different apple orchards; all involved use of mevinphos to control apple aphids. This report summarizes the results of these investigations by WDOH.
