Carbadox (2-formylquinoxaline 1,4-dioxide carbomethoxyhydrazone), a feed additive for swine, showed mutagenicity against Salmonella typhimurium TA 98 and TA 100 both in the absence and presence of S-9 mix. The mutagenic activity was stronger than that of quinoxaline 1,4-dioxide and was close to that of benzo[a]pyrene.
