If the post at that site is correct, and I assume that it is, then there are
all sorts of problems with MMS as it is now being sold. (I'm not against
the sale of MMS in any way, am just pointing out what is in the law.)
"To back up my views on concentration of NaClO2, i have contacted US
Department of Transport (DOT), and it is the same world wide.
United States Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations require that sodium
chlorite solutions containing greater than 5% NaClO2 carry a corrosive label.
DOT make exemption for some chemicals in small quantaties, but only to 1oz and
chlorite sollutions are not included in this exemption.
This means MMS should carry a danger red diamond, have a caution lable
containing “Keep out of reach of children”,UN 1908, CORROSIVE 8, HAZCHEM 2X
and PG11, none of which are on there. They were appaled to realise bottles
containing 55 oz were being express posted as well as bulk orders of 4 oz
bottles, in dozens (48 oz) and even bulk of 100 4oz (400 oz).
MMS can not be posted or express posted as it is by distributors, to quote DOT
they are breaking the law. This can be verified at the web site below
Whether the "problem" is political or not, makes no difference, the
Post Office rules! I bought many 35% h2o2 bottles on-line, but with the
change in postal regulations, the shipping charge for a small bottle of it
became obscene. I now just go to my local health food store where it has
been shipped via a non-postal ground carrier in large quantities, which make my
in store purchase price much cheaper than on-line.
If the labeling is enforced per regulations, that alone will require
additional costs. I don't really see the elimination of MMS in small
quantities, only the elimination of the current convenient access to it.
The poster on that site contacted the DOT to have them enforce government
regulations. Whether the poster's request will be acted on or if it will
just stew in the government morass remains to be seen.
