    "In rat and monkey metabolism studies, Engst et al.
    (1976) and Rozman et al. (1979) identified pentachlorophenol (classified as B2, probable human
    carcinogen) and 2,3,4,5-tetrachlorophenol as major metabolites of pentachlorobenzene."

    "Pentachlorobenzene (PeCB) is an important environmental contaminant derived primarily from the by-
    product contamination of the popular fungicides hexachlorobenzene and pentachloronitrobenzene."

    [Note: PENTACHLORONITROBENZENE is another name for QUINTOZENE.]

    "The substance may have effects on the liver and kidneys, resulting in tissue lesions. Animal tests
    show that this substance possibly causes toxic effects upon human reproduction."
