SECTION 2: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Physical Appearance: Small cylindrical batteries
CAUTION: Battery can explode or leak if heated, disassembled, shorted, recharged, exposed to fire or high temperature or inserted incorrectly. Keep in original package until ready to use. Do not carry batteries loose in your pocket or purse. Keep batteries away from children. If swallowed, consult a physician at once. For information on treatment, call the NATIONAL BUTTON BATTERY INGESTION HOTLINE, collect day or night, at (202) 625-3333. Under certain misuse conditions and by abusively opening the battery, exposed lithium can react with water or moisture in the air causing potential thermal burns or fire.
Potential Health Effects:
The chemicals and metals in this product are contained in a sealed can. Exposure to the contents will not occur unless the battery leaks, is exposed to high temperatures or is mechanically, physically, or electrically abused.
Eye Contact: Contact with battery contents may cause irritation.
Skin Contact: Contact with battery contents may cause irritation.
Inhalation: Inhalation of vapors or fumes released due to heat or a large number of leaking batteries may cause respiratory and eye irritation.
Ingestion: Swallowing is not anticipated for larger batteries due to battery size. Smaller batteries may be swallowed. If battery is swallowed, seek immediate medical advice. Batteries lodged in the esophagus should be removed immediately since leakage, caustic burns and perforation can occur as soon as two hours after ingestion. Irritation to the internal/external mouth areas may occur following exposure to a leaking battery. Do not give ipecac.

SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
Eye Contact: If battery is leaking and material contacts the eye, flush thoroughly with copious amounts of running water for 30 minutes. Seek immediate medical attention.
Skin Contact: If battery is leaking and material contacts the skin, remove any contaminated clothing and flush exposed skin with copious amounts of running water for at least 15 minutes.
If irritation, injury or pain persists, seek medical attention.
Inhaled: If battery is leaking, contents may be irritating to respiratory passages. Move to fresh air. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.
Swallowed: If battery is swallowed seek immediate medical advice. Batteries lodged in the esophagus should be removed immediately since leakage, caustic burns and perforation can occur as soon as two hours after ingestion. If mouth area irritation or burning has occurred, rinse the mouth and surrounding area with tepid water for at least 15 minutes. Do not give ipecac.
Note to Physician: Published reports recommend removal from the esophagus is done endoscopically (under direct visualization). Batteries beyond the esophagus need not be retrieved unless there are signs of injury to the GI tract or a large diameter battery fails to pass the pylorus. If asymptomatic, follow-up x-rays are necessary only to confirm the passage of larger batteries. Confirmation by stool inspection is preferable under most circumstances. For information on treatment, telephone (202) 625-3333 collect, day or night. Potential leakage of dimethoxyethane, propylene carbonate and lithium perchlorate.Dimethoxyethane rapidly evaporates. Do not give ipecac.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Fire and Explosion Hazards: Batteries may burst and release hazardous decomposition products when exposed to a fire situation.
Extinguishing Media: Use dry chemical, alcohol foam, water or carbon dioxide as appropriate for the surrounding fire. For incipient fires, carbon dioxide extinguishers are more effective than water.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Firefighters should wear positive pressure selfcontained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Fight fire from a distance or protected area. Cool fire exposed batteries to prevent rupture. Use caution when handling fire-exposed containers (batteries may explode in heat of fire).
Hazardous Combustion Products: Thermal degradation may produce hazardous fumes of lithium and manganese; hydrofluoric acid, oxides of carbon and sulfur and other toxic byproducts.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Notify safety personnel of large spills. Irritating vapors and flammable may be released from leaking or ruptured batteries. Eliminate all ignition sources. Evacuate the area and allow the vapors to dissipate. Clean-up personnel should wear appropriate protective clothing to avoid eye and skin contact and inhalation of vapors or fumes. Increase ventilation. Carefully collect batteries and place in an appropriate container for disposal. Remove spilled liquid with absorbent and contain for disposal.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Avoid mechanical or electrical abuse. DO NOT short circuit or install incorrectly. Batteries may explode pyrolize or vent if disassembled, crushed, recharged or exposed to high temperatures. Install batteries in accordance with equipment instructions. Replace all batteries in equipment at the same time. Do not carry batteries loose in a pocket or bag.
Storage: Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
The following occupational exposure limits are provided for informational purposes. No exposure to the battery components should occur during normal consumer use.
Ventilation: No special ventilation is needed for normal use. Respiratory Protection: None required for normal use.
Skin Protection: None required for normal use. Use butyl rubber gloves when handling leaking batteries.
Eye Protection:None required for normal use.Wear safety goggles when handling leakingbatteries.

SECTION 12: ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
No ecotoxicity data is available. This product is not expected to present an environmental hazard.
SECTION 13: DISPOSAL INFORMATION
Lithium batteries are best disposed of as a non-hazardous waste when fully or mostly discharged. The
Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (governed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)) do not list or exempt Lithium as a hazardous waste. However, if waste lithium batteries are still fully charged or only partially discharged, they can be considered a reactive hazardous waste because of significant amounts of unreacted lithium in the battery. The batteries must be neutralized through an approved secondary treatment facility prior to disposal as a hazardous waste (as required by the U.S. Land Ban Restrictions for the hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984.) Secondary treatment centers receive these batteries as manifested hazardous waste under code “D003 – reactive.” Use a professional disposal firm for disposal of mass quantities of undischarged lithium batteries.
DO NOT INCINERATE or subject battery cells to temperatures in excess of 212°F. Such treatment can cause cell rupture.
Contact your local government for disposal practices in your area.
SECTION 14: TRANSPORT INFORMATION
The transportation of lithium metal batteries and lithium metal batteries contained in equipment is regulated as UN3090 and UN3091 by ICAO, IATA, IMO and US DOT. However, the listed lithium metal batteries cells and batteries are not subject to the other provisions of the regulations as long as they are packaged and marked in accordance with the regulations.
(The lithium content of cells contained in this document is less than 1 gram. The lithium content of batteries contained in this document is less than 2 grams)
The listed lithium metal batteries meet the requirements of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III subsection 38.3. In addition, each shipment must be accompanied by appropriate documentation and the package must be capable of withstanding the drop test requirements. Except for personal use, the shipment of lithium metal batteries aboard passenger aircraft is no longer allowed. Airline passengers may continue to have non-rechargeable lithium batteries for their equipment and a reasonable amount of spare non-rechargeable lithium batteries for their equipment in their carryon luggage – not in their checked baggage. For more information, air travelers should consult the US Department of Transportation (DOT) Safety Travel web site at http://safetravel.dot.gov
At this time, IMO and ADR continue to follow Special Provision 188 from the UN Model Regulations.
