We are NUTS for safety!!! Paul spent 30+ years manufacturing and processing these plastic pellets and he has seen some HORRIFIC accidents. He is a NUT for safety. For this reason our first post is specifically designed to keep you SAFE! Please, please understand the products you are buying. We have a page which details the MSDS for all of our products! Don't buy a product unless it has an MSDS sheet that you can see and review! MSDS stands for "material safety data sheet". The data on these sheets is regulated by our wonderful state and federal lawmakers and helps to keep us safe. ALL of our products are safe for the applications we recommend in our product descriptions. They can be used in home and commercial washers and dryers and are free of any toxic additives or by products. Some virgin and recycled products can contain additives or contaminants like carginogenic (cancer causing) chemicals which are obviously unsafe for human exposure. When buying a recycled product, PLEASE be sure you understand the source. If a product does not indicated that it is NEW, UNUSED, and UNPROCESSED, you should not buy it unless you know where it came from. Prioirty one at plasticpellets4fun is SAFETY! So....be safe and have fun!!!
