"UNION CARBIDE SUPPORTS EPA ACTION ON REPELLENT LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS" by Journal of Commerce Staff
Aug 28, 1991 8:00PM EDT: https://www.joc.com/union-carbide-supports-epa-action-repellent-linked-birth-defects_19910828.html
"INSECT REPELLENT LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS IN TESTS" by The Washington Post:
"Federal Corporation Information - 264849-1", Government of Canada: https://www.ic.gc.ca/app/scr/cc/CorporationsCanada/fdrlCrpDtls.html?corpId=2648491
"Pest Control Products Act R.S.C., 1985, c. P-9", Justice Laws Website, Government of Canada: https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/P-9/page-1.html
Research Facts
Ethylhexanediol was shown by Union Carbide to potentially produce birth defects in animals, including their lungs failing to inflate when they are born. Because of this discovery, products like 6-12 Insect Repellent were taken off the shelves in the 1990s and pregnant and child-bearing age women were urged not to use it.

Research Facts
A. B. S. & C. stands for Aloin, Belladonna, Strychnine and Cascara; despite poisonous ingredients and the designation of poison on the label, these pills were often used to treat habitual constipation.
C. E. Jamieson & Co. Limited was the name of the company from 1944 until it became Jamieson Laboratories Ltd. in 1998.
The D in diamond symbol embossed on the bottom indicates the bottle itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company in Hamilton, Ontario.

“Acetanilide: Drug” Encyclopedia Britannica https://www.britannica.com/science/acetanilide
Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysol
Research Facts
This bottle contains a mixture of Acetanilide and Lysol. Acetanilide is a compound drug used for fever-reducing since 1886 as an alternative to aspirin for treating headaches, cramps, and rheumatism. It does have toxic side effects from prolonged use such as complicating the function of hemoglobin. Lysol was first used in Germany in 1889 to end a cholera epidemic. It is a mixture of soap with cresols as an antiseptic. Before its use as a cleaner, it has been used as a poison, to treat the Spanish flu of 1918, and as a method of birth control in women in the 1920s. This bottle is half-filled with the liquid.
