Italian term or phrase: effetti tossico-nocivi
toxic-noxious effects? tradotto alla lettera oppure esiste una "frase fatta"?

Il prodotto, se ingerito, potrebbe aver effetti tossico-nocivi
pietra
English translation:toxic and/or harmful effects
Explanation:
In full: "If ingested, the product may have toxic and/or harmful effects."

This sentence, which is probably the most compact of the various options, often appears in English-language Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and on warning labels.

Cheers,

The product is harmful and toxic


Explanation:
non lascerei la frase come in italiano, ma direi qualcosa come
"Avoid ingestion: the product may be/is harmful and toxic"

l'inglese in queste istruzioni per l'uso e' molto diretto e poco dubitativo, opterei addirittura per l'indicativo

saluti e buon lavoro
