Poisoning – ingestion of tiny amount of oven cleaner

Patient: I cleaned my oven with oven pride last week. I have used it for the first time tonight and I am worried that some tiny specks of the dried cleaner may have ended up on my pizza. I don’t have any symptoms but what would they be if I had ingested some

Symptoms: None
