Following the thread here.

One can purchase methyl violet free Methyl reen from Sigma.  This avoids 
the messy procedure to remove methyl violet using toxic chloroform and a 
separating funnel inside a fume hood. We changed to Sigmas MG instead of 
taking a chance other companies methyl green dye lots were not MV free.
