toxico- logical testing of the Bio-Rem H-10 biochemical additive, I have come to
the following conclusions:
1. The product poses no significant health threat or long-term

formulation. This type of exposure would exclude
direct inhalation of the powder (before mixing into

2. Persons directly handling the powdered microbial amendment
should wear full safety goggles and a respirator approved
for nuisance dust to avoid any eye or inhalation exposure.
3. Skin contact should be avoided only if a dermal allergic
after handling powdered or
Bacteria in the formulation, although they are listed
as opportunistic pathogens, are typical of soil microorganisms and should pose
no threat greater than that of typical topsoil when exposed to any dermal cuts
or abrasions. However, as a precaution, any large cuts should be protected from
direct contact with the formulation.
If you have any questions concerning my
recommendations, please contact me.
