    SOME IRRITATION TO EYES, NOSE & THROAT. INHALATION MAY CAUSE BENIGN
    PNEUMOCONIOSIS, MOTTLING OF THE LUNGS. INHALATION/INGESTION:
    MANGANESE POISONING.
Explanation of Carcinogenicity:SEE INGREDIENTS.

    LUNG DISEASE.

=======================  First Aid Measures  =======================

First Aid:INHALATION: REMOVE TO FRESH AIR. SUPPORT BREATHING AS
    REQUIRED. SKIN: WASH AFFECTED AREA W/MILD SOAP & WATER. EYES: FLUSH
    W/WATER FOR 15 MINS. OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION IN ALL CASES.

Lower Limits:800
Extinguishing Media:DRY POWDER, DRY SAND/CO2.
Fire Fighting Procedures:ISOLATE FIRE & ALLOW TO BURN OUT.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:DUST CAN BE IGNITED WHEN SUSPENDED IN
    AIR. WILL PROPOGATE FLAME BUT ISN'T EXPECTED TO GENERATED
    SUFFICIENT PRESSURE TO EXPLODE.

==================  Accidental Release Measures  ==================

Spill Release Procedures:USE APPROPRIATE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT. AVOID
