    Dermal LD50:
    >5 g/kg (rabbits) PEL: 15 mg/m3 (total dust)

    Additional Information:

    The results obtained from a Xerox sponsored Chronic Toner Inhalation Study, demonstrated no lung change in rats for the lowest

    (1mg/m3) exposure level (i.e. the level most relevant to potential human exposure). A very slight degree of fibrosis was noted in 25% of

    the animals at the middle (4mg/m3) exposure level, while a slight degree of fibrosis was noted in all the animals at the highest (16mg/m3)

    exposure level. These findings are attributed to “lung overloading”, a generic response to excessive amounts of any dust retained in

    the lungs for a prolonged period. This study was conducted using a special test toner to comply with EPA testing protocol. The test

    toner was ten times more respirable than commercia

Still using color toner when printing in black

Check the black toner cartridge. Most printers that use multiple cartridges will use the black cartridge as long as it has toner in it but will then start using the color toner to do the black/grayscale when the black cartridge is empty.
