[Histonet] Are Paraffin Blocks Contaminated?


Hello all.
I am inquiring of the latest ruling by CAP (or whoever) as to whether 
paraffin blocks are considered contaminated or hazardous. Are the employees who 
package them up for mailing required to be trained in the handling of possible 
exposure?  .....as CJ brain blocks?  Anyone know if this is necessary?  Thanks 
very much.
