Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
  EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Contact with combustible material may cause fire.Hygroscopic.
Potential Health Effects
Eye:
May cause moderate eye irritation.
Skin:
May cause moderate skin irritation.
Ingestion:
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause methemoglobinemia, cyanosis, convulsions, and death.
Excessive amounts of magnesium may cause central nervous system depression, respiratory paralysis, and cardiac arrest.
Inhalation:
Dust is irritating to the respiratory tract. May cause methemoglobinemia, cyanosis, convulsions, tachycardia, dyspnea, and death. May cause effects similar to those described for ingestion.
Chronic:
Repeated exposure may cause kidney damage and digestive tract abnormalities.

Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
  Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. Get medical aid.
Skin:
Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists.
Ingestion:
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation:
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Antidote: The use of Calcium disodium EDTA as a chelating agent should be determined by qualified medical personnel.

Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
  General Information:
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Oxidizer. Greatly increases the burning rate of combustible materials.
