necessary to mark the tool shelf on a ladder "not a step,", and boat
builders have to put a placard on a swim platform warning against "teak
surfing" because some of them have been sued for "failure to warn,"
mfrs now include extreme safety precautions against even the most remote
possibilities they can think of. I've even seen warnings on milk jugs
that it shouldn't be consumed by those who are lactose intolerant!
Pull up the MSDS on ANY product...you'll see warnings that'll scare the
bejabbers out of you...here's the one for SeaLand's "environmentally
friendly (?)" holding tank product. The MSDS for Odorlos isn't on their
website, but I have a copy of it, and also the one for Raritan K.O.
(which my own company developed...I sold the product line to Raritan in
1999) I can attach to an email if you want read it.
But what it comes down to is, if you don't feel that a product is safe
to use without excessive precaution, don't use it.
