Always keep chili products away for children. Close the chili containers and keep out of reach of your children. Please also don't forget to keep the children away when using chili for your food preparations.

You should always wear protective gloves when handling and using very spicy chili peppers/products, avoid skin contact, above all protect the eyes, afterward clean hands and the used dishes well.
The best first aid (in our experience), if contact with chili happened then:
In case of eye contact:
Immediately contact an ambulance, do not wash out with water !!!!
When burning in the mouth and esophagus occurs:
Then eat a piece of white bread or toast with as greasy as possible Mascarpone cheese, or any other greasy cheese, sweetened with sugar, sweetened milk with sugar. In no case water, that would only distribute the spiciness. Then rather drink a cold beer. The active ingredient of chilies, capsaicin is liposoluble.
