Properties and Observations

Whole beans or meal. The latter is the residue remaining after the oil has been extracted from the seeds. Castor beans contain a powerful allergen which, by inhalation of dust or by skin contact with crushed bean products, can give rise to severe irritation of the skin, eyes and mucous membranes in some persons. They are also toxic by ingestion. When handling these products, wear at least a dust mask and goggles. Avoid unnecessary skin contact.
