Does anyone know if cocoa beans are considered a potentially hazardous food product?

if unroasted, yes.  they are likely to contain harmful bacteria.  also, if you throw them really, really hard at someone, it can be hurtful.

Wait, I'm confused. I was under the impression that PHF's are foods that need to be refrigerated for storage. Do un-roasted beans need to be refrigerated?

No.  However, the warmer you keep them, or the higher humidity they are stored in, the higher the potential for infestation - just as with any raw agricultural commodity.

Thank you for your reply Sebastian.
hmmmm didn't consider throwing them at someone, will have to remember that next time my other half makes me mad....lol
