Acute Health Effects: From MSDS: HEALTH HAZARD DATA Dust may irritate eyes. Inhalation of dust may irritate nose and throat. Repeated or prolonged overexposure to the dust may cause coughing, shortness of breath, and occupational lung disease. Wood dust is a possible sensitizer. Studies have linked wood dust to nasal cancer in furniture industry workers. Woodworkers in the building industry (e.g. carpenters) do not appear to have this increased risk. Due to the product form and typical use conditions, significant dust exposures are unlikely, and, therefore, the potential for any chronic effects is low. Under normal consumer use situations, no medical conditions are known to be aggravated by exposure to this product. CARBON MONOXIDE HAZARD.
