Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: From Label: Never use gas to light charcoal. Do not add lighter fluid directly to burning or hot charcoal. Make sure ashes are cold if discarding. Never barbecue indoors. Grill should be placed on a flat and level surface away from flammatory items, overhangs and trees. California Prop 65 Warning. From MSDS: Vapors may cause irritation to the nose, throat, and respiratory tract. Repeated or prolonged exposure to concentrations above the Worker Exposure Limit may cause central nervous system depression (e.g. dizziness, weakness, nausea, headaches and/or unconsciousness). Solvents similar to those contained in this product have caused adverse kidney effects in male rats after prolonged and repeated inhalation exposure. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational exposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. 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. CARBON MONOXIDE HAZARD. Burning charcoal inside without adequate ventilation can kill you. It gives off carbon monoxide, which has no odor. NEVER burn charcoal inside homes, vehicles or tents. Preexisting eye, skin, and respiratory disorders may be aggravated by exposure to this product.
