One hundred ninety-nine household product labels were evaluated for Turkish marking and labeling requirements and the adequacy for management of high dose exposures. Fifty-six percent of the products were proper. The rest had inadequate information or did not have warning instructions, an ingredients list and/or other requirements. The requirements do not provide adequate consumer warning and management of overdose ingestions. Household product labeling standards on Turkey should be reviewed and improved by collaboration with poison centers and manufacturers.
