They are supposed to take the poisoned food back to the ant nest so there shouldn't be any residue. The toxin only works on insects, a human would have to eat a lot of it to feel some effects, indeed the plastic of the container may be more dangerous than the content.
My (small) dog ate one once and had an upset tummy afterwards (vomiting and loose stools), but nothing dramatic.

Each and every year around this time, ants try to come visit our house. I use the same boxes (albeit the Migros version), and the visits are over in two days max.
This user would like to thank Mélusine for this useful post:
