Valeraldehyde has caused skin irritation in humans and was a skin and eye irritant in laboratory animals. A volunteer study generated no evidence of skin sensitizing potential. In various species it was of low acute oral or dermal toxicity. Lung damage was the main effect of a single high exposure to an aerosol. Valeraldehyde caused chromosomal and DNA effects in mammalian cells in culture but was not mutagenic in an Ames bacterial test.
