    "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."
