In 2016, the American Association of Poison Control Centers reported 1994 single exposures to organophosphate insecticides alone, with 17 major outcomes and one death. In addition, 537 single exposures to organophosphate insecticides in combination with carbamate or non-carbarbamate insecticides were reported, with two major outcomes and no deaths. [6]
