HP inks are safe when used as intended.  HP encourages customers to minimize exposure by washing with water any area that comes into contact with ink.  If ink comes in contact with skin for a prolonged period and symptoms of irritation appear, HP encourages the customer to seek professional medical advice.  The HP Health Line has been established to assist customers in obtaining answers to health-related questions concerning HP ink products.  This phone line is staffed around the clock by trained medical professionals and is available at no cost to the customer.  In the United States and Canada, customers may call toll free (800) 457-4209.  All other callers should dial (503) 494-7199.  Collect calls are accepted and staff members fluent in over 200 languages are ready to offer assistance.
