CASTOR SEEDS - The oil from this seed is used as a pharmaceutical. Should the bags burst, these small seeds will scatter and penetrate widely throughout the space where they are loaded. For this reason they should be segregated from edible produce as they are capable of causing poisonous contamination. Heating cannot usually be detected from external examination, but can be ascertained by cracking the beans to detect internal discoloration. See also IMDG Code & US CFR.
