WARNING
  • Do not dispose of used toner cartridges or the like in open flames. Also, do not store toner cartridges, drum cartridges, or paper in a location exposed to open flames. This may cause the toner to ignite, and result in burns or fire.
  • If you accidentally spill or scatter toner, carefully gather the toner particles together or wipe them up with a soft, damp cloth in a way that prevents inhalation. Never use a vacuum cleaner that does not have safeguards against dust explosions to clean up spilled toner. Doing so may cause a malfunction in the vacuum cleaner, or result in a dust explosion due to static discharge.
If you are using a cardiac pacemaker
  • The toner cartridge generates a low level magnetic flux. If you are using a cardiac pacemaker and feel abnormalities, please move away from the toner cartridge and consult your physician immediately.
CAUTION
  • Use caution not to inhale any toner. If you should inhale toner, consult a physician immediately.
  • Use caution so that toner does not get into your eyes or mouth. If toner should get into your eyes or mouth, immediately wash with cold water and consult a physician.
  • Use caution so that toner does not come into contact with your skin. If it should, wash with soap and cold water. If there is any irritation on your skin, consult a physician immediately.
  • Keep the toner cartridges and other consumables out of the reach of small children. If toner is ingested, consult a physician or poison control center immediately.
  • Do not disassemble or modify the toner cartridge or the like. Doing so may cause the toner to scatter.
