The following information is provided to assist in the safe use of our    
CAUTION: Batteries may explode or leak, and cause chemical/thermal burn   
injury, if recharged, disposed of in fire, mixed with a different battery 
type, inserted backwards or disassembled. Do not carry batteries loose in 
your pock or purse. Keep small batteries (i.e., AAA) away from children.  
If swallowed, consult a physician at once.

Personal Precautions: SPECIAL NOTE: In the event of transport incidents   
involving damage to the battery packaging, please see Emergency           
Information in Appendix A.                                                
Notify safety personnel of large spills. Caustic potassium hydroxide may  
be released from leaking or ruptured batteries. Ventilate area. Carefully 
collect batteries and place in an appropriate container for disposal.     
Avoid eye and skin contact and inhalation of vapors and fumes. Clean-up   
personnel should wear appropriate protective clothing, such as:           
Chemical resistant gloves                                                 
Protective clothing against splashing of corrosive products               
Safety Boots

7.  HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                  
Handling: Batteries may explode, pyrolize or vent if disassembled,        
crushed, recharged or exposed to high temperatures. Install batteries in  
accordance with equipment instructions. Do not mix battery systems, such  
as alkaline and zinc carbon, in the same equipment. Replace all batteries 
in equipment at the same time. Do not carry batteries loose in a pocket or
Storage: Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature. Do not
refrigerate. Batteries must remain oriented as packaged and shipped.      
Batteries may short circuit if positive end is allowed to contact one     
another or any metal objects.                                             
8.  EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION                                 
Exposure Guidelines: No exposure to the battery components should occur   
during normal use.

14.  TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION                                           
Alkaline battery products, covered by this SDS, in their original form,   
are considered "dry cell" batteries and are not regulated for             
transportation as "DANGEROUS GOODS." However, special regulatory concerns 
apply that require batteries to be packaged in a manner that prevents the 
generation of a dangerous quantity of heat and short circuits.

EU Classification of Preparation: Not classified as a dangerous           
EU Battery Directive: Duracell alkaline batteries comply with the         
substance restriction limits and labeling requirements set forth in the EU
Battery Directive 2006/66/EC and as a result contain <0.0005% (5 ppm)     
mercury, <0.002% (20 ppm) cadmium and <0.004% (40 ppm) lead. The chemical 
symbols Hg, Cd and Pb are therefore not required below the separate       
collection symbol.                                                        
EU RoHS Directive: Batteries are not subject regulation.                  
EU REACH: Subject battery products are "articles" under REACH and not     
subject to REACH registration or e-SDS requirements. To the best of our   
knowledge, Duracell alkaline batteries do not contain any of the 73 SVHC  
per the ECHA updated listed 12/19/2011.                                   
EU Labeling: None required. Labeling is not required because batteries are
classified as articles under both REACH and the Dangerous Preparations    
Directive and as such are exempt from the requirement for labeling.       
Canada: All intentionally-added components of this product are listed on  
the Canadian DSL. This product has been classified in accordance with the 
hazard criteria of the Canadian Controlled Products Regulations (CPR) and
