Ingredients not precisely
identified are proprietary and/or non-hazardous. All chemical ingredients
appear on the EPA TSCA inventory.
Emergency Overview: Organisms used are non-pathogenic, but
can cause infection when in contact with open wounds. These organisms are
susceptible to many commonly used antibiotics.
Potential Health Effects:
Signs and Symptoms of
Acute Overexposure: Eye,
Signs and Symptoms of
Chronic overexposure: Dermatitis
and skin sensitization
Medical Conditions Generally
Aggravated by Exposure:
Ingestion: Ingestion (acute exposure) of ammonium
slats may produce nausea, vomiting, gastric irritation. Large doses (over
6 grams) may cause systemic ammonia toxicity. Symptoms may include heavy
breathing, blue skin, dulness, restlessness, convulsions or coma. DSP ingestion
may result in abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shock, hypertension,
slow pulse, cyanosis, coma and convulsions.
Inhalation: (Acute) Inhalation may cause throat irritation
and coughing. (Chronic) No effects reported in humans.
Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air
Ingestion: Give victim water or milk to drink to
dilute the product. Get medical advice..
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and footwear.
Wash skin with soap and water. Wash clothing before reuse.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for
15 minutes. Get medical attention.
Note to Physician: If patient's immune system is compromised,
request antibiotic sensitivity chart from Alken-Murray Corporation by e-mail:

Special Fire-Fighting Information:
Unusual Fire and Explosion
Soil spill: Dig a pit, pond, or lagoon holding area to contain
liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving
in rain or firefighting water. Water spill: Add suitable agent to
neutralize spilled material to pH 7 then place into a chemical waste container.
Wear approved respirator for nuisance dust during cleanup.
Store in cool dry place. Keep
container closed when not in use. Avoid storage of product above 110 degrees
F and keep from freezing. Keep out of direct sunlight.
Controls/ Personal Protection
Ventilation System: Good general ventilation is advisable
(NIOSH Approved): if
needed, use respirator to screen out nuisance dust
Skin Protection: Long sleeved clothing
Eye Protection: Safety glasses if dust is raised
Other Control Measures:
in accordance with good hygiene practice. Avoid handling which would create
large amounts of dust.
