Re: MSDS access

If a carcinagen is actually a component of any chemical, it is a requirement of
the manufacturer to list it in the MSDS.

not sure about this.  msds's from specific companies are necessary to inform
us of manufacturing differences.  case in point is the alcian yellow being
discussed at the moment.  if the company is using the carcinogen Bob Richmond
pointed out to make the dye we need to know about it, unless that is just a
manufacturing exposure issue and does not affect the final product.
