3. Hazards Identification
Emergency Overview: The microorganisms used in this product
are BioSafety Class 1 microorganisms, as defined by the Centers for Disease
Control as unlikely to cause disease in healthy humans or animals. However,
persons with compromised immune systems should avoid contact with open wounds
and/or breathing dust or mist from manufacturing processes. These organisms
are susceptible to many commonly used antibiotics, and Alken-Murray is willing
to supply antibiotic sensitivity information to any doctor or import health
authority requesting it. Because surfactants are included, primary skin
irritation under 29CFR 1910.1200 is considered possible, as is true of many
shampoos that contain the same surfactants. Although bacterial cultures
included in this product were grown in a sterile aqueous medium containing
a variety of nutrients, including corn syrup solids, digests of soybean
and/or skim milk, glucose or other sugars, vegetable oils, including olive
oil, yeast extract, mineral salts, etc., the concentrations of these residual
nutrients are believed to be below levels capable of triggering irritation.

8. Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection
Environmental Fate: This product is not likely to bio-concentrate, if mixed with water. This product released directly or indirectly into the environment is not expected to have a significant impact.
Environmental Toxicity: This material has a low potential to affect
aquatic organisms, secondary waste treatment microorganisms, and the growth
of some plants.
Aquatic Ecotoxicity of Individual Ingredients: CAS# 2634-33-1, 1,2 benzisothiazolin-3-one (<1%) is VERY toxic to aquatic organisms (Fish, LC50, 4 days exposure = 1.0 - 3.3 ppm. Crustaceans (Daphnia magna) EC50 immobilization = 2 days exposure 0.85 ppm.
If there is any specific concern about discharge of this product to the environment, the selected and adapted cultures in Alken Clear-Flo® 7004 will digest LAS and many other varieties of chemical surfactants more rapidly than unadapted cultures.

|RCRA Hazard Class (if discarded): Neat, unused product is not considered a hazardous waste, according to RCRA regulations 40 CFR 261. . For proper disposal of used materials, an assessment must be completed to determine the proper waste management options permissible under applicable rules, regulations and/or laws governing client's location. Use until less than 1 inch remains in the container, triple rinse with clean water, and pour rinse water to sewer. Then remove or deface product label to avoid confusion if pail or drum is later refilled. Clean, empty containers should be recycled or disposed of through an approved waste management facility.|
