What does this mean?

Orange rinds and the oil from the rind can cause defatting of skin tissues if exposed. Avoid getting orange rinds or oils on skin or in eyes. If exposure occurs, flush immediately with large quantities of water for 15 minutes. Note that orange oil can be highly combustible. Do not use or store near sparking equipment or open flame.
