No information given.
Carcinogenicity: This product contains a small amount of crystalline silica, a naturally occurring impurity in calcium carbonate. NTP has listed crystalline silica as a known human carcinogen based on increased lung cancer rates in workers exposed to respirable-size (breathable) crystalline silica, primarily quartz and cristobalite, that are generated during sandblasting or similar activities in an occupational setting. IARC has determined that crystalline silica inhaled in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is carcinogenic to humans. However, no significant health risk to employees is expected during product manufacturing or occupational use.
First Aid: EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
