SECTION 2: HAZARD(S) IDENTIFICATION

CLASSIFICATION: ORGANIC DUST 

LABEL ELEMENTS: N/A DUE TO FDA LABELING EXEMPTION 

HAZARD STATEMENT(S): CLASS 2B EYE IRRITANT.

MAY CAUSE BREATHING DIFFICULTIES IF INHALED.

MAY CREATE A FLASH FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD IF DUST OF CERTAIN PARTICLE SIZE IS SUSPENDED IN AIR AT SUFFICIENT CONCENTRATION IN A CONFINED SPACE AND EXPOSED TO AN IGNITION SOURCE. 

PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENT(S): MAY BE MECHANICAL EYE IRRITANT. RINSE EYES WITH WATER FOR SEVERAL MINUTES.

AVOID BREATHING DUST. EXCESSIVE INHALATION MAY AFFECT NOSE THROAT, AND LUNGS. FEED DUST MAY BURN IF SUSPENDED IN AIR AND MAY CREATE A FLASH FIRE/ EXPLOSION HAZARD. AVOID IGNITION SOURCES.  

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: DUST FROM PARTICULATES MAY BE MECHANICAL IRRITANT TO EYES. EXCESSIVE INHALATION OF GRAIN DUSTS MAY AFFECT NOSE THROAT, AND LUNGS. MAY FORM COMBUSTIBLE DUST CONCENTRATION IN AIR; SEE “EXPLOSION HAZARD” BELOW. 

EXPLOSION HAZARD: FEED IS GENERALLY CONSIDERED NOT HAZARDOUS, BUT DUST GENERATED THROUGH DOWNSTREAM ACTIVITIES THAT MAY REDUCE ITS PARTICLE SIZE (E.G., SHIPPING, HANDLING, TRANSFER TO BINS, ETC.) MAY CREATE A HAZARDOUS CONDITION.

IF EXPOSED TO AN IGNITION SOURCE, FEED DUST MAY BURN. AIRBORNE DUST IN SUFFICIENT CONCENTRATIONS WHEN EXPOSED TO AN IGNITION SOURCE MAY FLASH OR, IN A CONFINED SITUATION, MAY FUEL AN EXPLOSION.

SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES

INHALATION:
REMOVE PERSON FROM EXPOSURE. SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION FOR ANY BREATHING DIFFICULTY. 

INGESTION:
IF SWALLOWED, GIVE SEVERAL GLASSES OF WATER TO DILUTE. NEVER GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON. 

SKIN CONTACT:
WASH AFFECTED SKIN WITH SOAP AND WATER.  

EYE CONTACT:
Flush with water for least 15 minutes. If irritation persists, contact a physician. 


SECTION 5: FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

FLASH POINT (METHOD): N/A

FLAMMABLE LIMITS:
LEL UEL
UNKNOWN  UNKNOWN 

AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: UNKNOWN

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: OXIDES OF CARBON

SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PROCEDURES: Special fire fighting procedures: Ignited or smoldering materials in a pile of bulk stored pellets can be isolated and
extinguished with water or other media. If allowed to become wet or handled such that the material’s moisture
content exceeds 15-20% water, aerobic fermentation can occur generating heat and utilizing oxygen. Such product
may ignite, producing smoldering type combustion.

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: EXPLOSION HAZARD MAY EXIST FOR COMBUSTIBLE DUSTS OF CERTAIN PARTICLE SIZE AND MOISTURE CONTENT WHEN SUSPENDED IN AIR AT CERTAIN CONCENTRATIONS AND SUBJECTED TO AN IGNITION SOURCE.


SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

CLEAN UP WITH SOFT BRISTLE BROOM(S) OR A VACUUM APPROVED FOR A CLASS II HAZARDOUS LOCATION. DUST DEPOSITS SHOULD BE MAINTAINED TO A MINIMUM ON SURFACES, AS THESE COULD FORM AN EXPLOSIVE MIXTURE IF THEY ARE RELEASED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE IN SUFFICIENT CONCENTRATION. AVOID DISPERSAL OF DUST IN THE AIR (I.E., CLEANING DUST SURFACES WITH COMPRESSED AIR IN THE PRESENCE OF IGNITION SOURCE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED). NON-SPARKING TOOLS SHOULD BE USED. 


SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE

AVOID DISPENSING DUST IN AIR AND EXPOSURE TO POTENTIAL IGNITION SOURCES. REMOVE FEED DUST FROM AREA/PROCESSING EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO USING ANY HEAT PRODUCING EQUIPMENT SUCH AS ARC WELDERS, CUTTING TORCHES AND SPARK/HEAT PRODUCING TOOLS SUCH AS PORTABLE SURFACE GRINDERS. Avoid moisture exposure, high heat or ignition sources. Storage in confined spaces should be monitored for oxygen and particulate levels and proper precautions taken. Use NIOSH approved
mask or respirator and goggles for protection from particulates in confined areas, if necessary. 


SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: MAY CAUSE IRRITATION OF THE NASAL MEMBRANES OR THE UPPER RESPIRATORY TRACT. IF DUST EXCEEDS THE NUISANCE LEVEL. WEAR AN APPROVED NIOSH DUST RESPIRATOR WHENEVER DUST CONCENTRATIONS IN THE WORK AREA ARE ABOVE ACGIH TLV/OSHA PELS. Recommended NIOSH mask or respirator if prolonged contact is expected in confined areas.

VENTILATION:
LOCAL EXHAUST MECHANICAL (GENERAL)

IF NEEDED 

IF NEEDED 

ENSURE THAT DUST HANDLING SYSTEMS (SUCH AS EXHAUST DUCTS, DUST COLLECTORS, VESSELS, AND PROCESSING EQUIPMENT) ARE DESIGNED IN A MANNER TO PREVENT THE ESCAPE OF DUST INTO THE WORK AREAS. USE ONLY APPROPRIATELY CLASSIFIED ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT AND POWERED INDUSTRIAL TRUCKS.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES: N/A

EYE PROTECTION: SAFETY GLASSES / GOGGLES SUGGESTED IN DUSTY CONDITIONS

WORK / HYGIENIC PRACTICES: GOOD PERSONAL HYGIENE PRACTICES SHOULD BE FOLLOWED. WASH HANDS AND FACE BEFORE EATING, DRINKING, ETC.

AVOID DUST ACCUMULATION AND CONTROL IGNITION SOURCES. WHERE APPROPRIATE, EMPLOY GROUNDING, VENTING, AND EXPLOSION RELIEF PROVISIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH ACCEPTED ENGINEERING PRACTICES IN PROCESSES CAPABLE OF GENERATING DUST AND/OR STATIC ELECTRICITY. AVOID ACCUMULATION OF DUST ON SURFACES TO PREVENT SECONDARY DUST EXPLOSIONS. REFER TO APPROPRIATE OSHA, NFPA AND APPLICABLE STANDARDS.


SECTION 9: PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

FLASH POINT (METHOD): N/A

FLAMMABLE LIMITS:
LEL UEL AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE
VARIABLE  UNKNOWN  UNKNOWN 

APPEARANCE: Brown pellets or flakes

SOLID CONTENTS: 100%

UPPER/LOWER FLAMMABILITY OR EXPLOSIVE LIMITS: WHEN DISPERSED INTO THE AIR IN SUFFICIENT CONCENTRATIONS GRAIN DUST CAN EXPLODE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE. DO NOT ALLOW DUST TO BECOME DISPERSED INTO THE AIR, EVEN BY THE EXTINGUISHING AGENT. MINIMUM EXPLOSIVE CONCENTRATION IS 55 G/M3. HOWEVER, MOISTURE CONTENT, PARTICLE SIZE, CALORIC PROPERTIES, AND SPECIFIC INGREDIENTS ALSO AFFECT THE EXPLOSIVENESS OF GRAIN DUST.

THE FLASH POINT AND FLAMMABLE LIMITS ARE ACCURATE BECAUSE GRAIN DUST HAS NO FLASH POINT, LEL, OR UEL DUE TO ITS PROPERTIES. THE FIREFIGHTING MEASURES LISTED ARE IN ACCORD WITH OTHER SIMILAR SDS.

FOR AN EXPLOSION TO OCCUR, FOUR CONDITIONS MUST EXIST: FIRST, OXYGEN MUST BE PRESENT. SECOND, THERE MUST BE AN IGNITION SOURCE (E.G. ELECTRICAL SHORT, SPARKS, ETC.). THIRD, THERE MUST BE FUEL (E.G. GRAIN DUST IN SUSPENSION). FOURTH, THERE MUST BE CONTAINMENT OF SUSPENDED GRAIN DUST (I.E. SILO, VESSEL, ETC.). ALTHOUGH AN EXPLOSION WILL NOT OCCUR IF THERE IS NO CONTAINMENT, THE DUST CAN STILL IGNITE, RESULTING IN A FIRE.

AS NOTED EXPLOSIONS ARE DEPENDENT UPON THE CONCENTRATION OF THE FUEL (E.G. GRAIN DUST SUSPENDED IN THE AIR. THE MINIMUM EXPLOSIVE CONCENTRATION (MEC) FOR GRAIN DUST IS AROUND 55 G/M3 THE MEC VARIES ACCORDING TO THE PARTICLE SIZE AND CALORIC PROPERTIES OF THE PRODUCT. IN ADDITION, THE SPECIFIC INGREDIENTS OF THE GRAIN DUST WILL AFFECT THE MEC. THEREFORE, THE LISTED MEC RANGE WOULD BE APPROPRIATE.

THE FOLLOWING INSERT TAKEN FROM "PREVENTING GRAIN DUST EXPLOSIONS" EXPLAINS EXPLOSIVE LIMITS FOR GRAIN DUST:

"A TEXAS A &M UNIVERSITY DUST CONTROL SCIENTIST SUGGESTS THAT THE MEC RANGE IS ABOUT 50 TO 150 GRAMS PER CUBIC METER, DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF DUST AND THE SIZE OF PARTICLES (PARNELL, 1998). THIS EQUATES TO THE SAME MEC LEVEL USED BY THE NATIONAL GRAIN AND FEED ASSOCIATION (NGFA). NGFA STATES THAT THE BROAD, GENERALLY ACCEPTED MEC FOR GRAIN DUST EXPLOSIONS IS ABOUT 0.05 OUNCES PER CUBIC FOOT OF VOLUME. IT SAYS THAT THE OPTIMUM EXPLOSIVE CONCENTRATION (DEC) IS ABOUT 0.5 TO 1.0 OUNCES PER CUBIC FOOT - ABOUT 10 TIMES THE MEC (GILLIS, 1985, P. 43)."

SECTION 15: REGULATORY INFORMATION: (NON-MANDATORY)
SECTION (B)(5)(III) OF THE HCS (CFR 1910.1200) EXEMPTS FOOD, INCLUDING FEED AND THEREFORE ANY ASSOCIATED FEED DUST, FROM THE LABELING REQUIREMENTS OF THE HCS SINCE THE FOOD/FEED IS SUBJECT TO THE LABELING REQUIREMENTS OF THE FOOD & DRUG ADMINISTRATION.  

SECTION 16: OTHER INFORMATION
ANIMAL FEED IS COMPRISED OF WHOLE AND PROCESSED GRAINS AND MAY CONTAIN ADDED VITAMINS AND MINERALS. FEED COMPONENTS GENERALLY PRODUCE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DUST IN MANUFACTURING AND HANDLING OF THE MATERIAL.

THIS SDS IS GENERIC AND MAY NOT APPLY TO ALL FEED FORMULATIONS. FOR EXAMPLE, FEED WITH CERTAIN ADDED MEDICATIONS PREMIXES, VITAMIN AND MINERAL SUPPLEMENTS MAY CONTAIN INGREDIENTS THAT RESULT IN DIFFERENT OR ADDITIONAL HAZARDS, MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES, MAY HAVE DIFFERING TOXICOLOGICAL EXPOSURES AND/OR MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION. THE MANUFACTURER IS ENCOURAGED TO EVALUATE EACH FEED FORMULATION TO DETERMINE IF THIS GENERIC SDS IS APPROPRIATE.

THIS GENERIC SDS IS NOT INTENDED TO SUGGEST THAT A SDS IS REQUIRED FOR ALL FEED DUST IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. THE MANUFACTURER OR IMPORTER SHOULD MAKE ITS OWN INTERPRETATION OF OSHA’S HCS, INCLUDING THE EXEMPTIONS IN THE STANDARD, FOR ITS SPECIFIC PRODUCT. SOME MANUFACTURERS OR IMPORTERS MAY ALSO PRODUCE A SDS FOR FEED DUST EVEN IF SUCH A SDS IS NOT REQUIRED BY OSHA’S HCS. THIS GENERIC SDS MAY BE USEFUL FOR THOSE MANUFACTURERS OR IMPORTERS.

IN ACCORDANCE WITH OSHA’S HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD (HCS) ALL MATERIALS: 1) WHICH CONSTITUTE 1 % OR MORE OF THIS PRODUCT AND MEET THE STANDARD’S DEFINITION OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS, 2) THAT CONSTITUTE 0.1% OR MORE AND MEET THE STANDARD’S DEFINITION OF CARCINOGENS, AND OR 3) THAT COULD BE RELEASED FROM THE PRODUCT IN EXCESS OF ESTABLISHED LIMITS SHOULD BE LISTED AND MAY REQUIRE A SPECIFIC SDS.
