According to the MSDS (HR17029), Citric Acid in powder form is ONLY
"irritating", to skin, eyes, or if concentrated dust (15 mg/m 3?) is
inhaled. No chronic effects to repeated exposure, No Carcinogenic Effect.
Disposal of Spills seems merely to neutralize, dilute and flush. It doesn’t
seem to be ignitable, and so is non explosive.
far milder than most foods I eat. Read an MSDS on flour or vegetable oil
and you’ll think they’re to dangerous to touch much less have in your home!
My first reading of Citric Acids MSDS caused me to laugh at OSHA’s
overboard, hyper cautious approach.
Plus it’s seems to me to be very effective and easy to use (unless boiled
dry in the Crock Pot, then just add water, stir and reuse till exhausted).
I love the stuff, since I have three young children in my home!
Safely yours, efw.
