Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage.
Handling
Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands before eating. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation.
Protection
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Respirators
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
Small spills/leaks
Ventilate area of leak or spill. Remove all sources of ignition. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Isolate hazard area. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Contain and recover liquid when possible. Use non-sparking tools and equipment. Collect liquid in an appropriate container or absorb with an inert material (e. g., vermiculite, dry sand, earth), and place in a chemical waste container. Do not use combustible materials, such as saw dust. Do not flush to sewer!
Stability
Stable under ordinary conditions of use and storage. Very slowly thickens and becomes rancid on prolonged exposure to air.
Incompatibilities
Strong oxidizing agents.
Decomposition
Carbon monoxide, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide.

Exposure effects
Aflatoxins may be transmitted via breast milk. Aflatoxins were detected in 37% of 99 Sudanese, 28% of 191 Kenyan, and 34% of 510 Ghanian breast milk samples. In Ghana the rate of detection was higher in the wet (41%) than dry (28%) season. <br>Study of maternal and cord sera from Thai subjects, showed only 6% of maternal blood had detectable aflatoxin, while 49% of cord sera was found positive for aflatoxin. This shows evidence of trans-placental transfer in humans and the possibility of concentration of aflatoxin by the feto-placental unit.
   Ingestion
Large oral doses may cause irritation to the gastrointestinal tract.
   Inhalation
May cause irritation to the respiratory tract. Symptoms may include coughing and shortness of breath.
   Skin
May cause irritation with redness and pain.
   Eyes
May cause irritation, redness and pain.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid if irritation or symptoms occur.
   Inhalation
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
   Skin
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. Wash clothing before reuse.
   Eyes
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation develops, get medical aid.
