Butyl butyrolactate was of low acute toxicity in rats treated orally and in rabbits treated dermally. The neat material was irritant to rabbit skin, but a dilute solution produced no skin irritation in man. An attempt to induce skin sensitization in volunteers using a low concentration was unsuccessful. Butyl butyrolactate did not produce chromosomal damage when injected into mice and was not mutagenic in an Ames bacterial test or in the fruit fly.
