Health Hazards: Product has a low order of acute oral and dermal toxicity, but minute amounts aspirated into the lungs during ingestion or vomiting may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury and possibly death. Health studies have shown that many petroleum hydrocarbons and synthetic lubricants pose potential human health risks that may vary from person to person.
