This same language is used on many products - example tobacco and alcohol products. The directions and warnings tell you they will cause harm and kill you, but they are still sold without any other requirement "ie - prescription".
The label directions say for use in unoccupied areas only or areas that are unoccupied for less than 4 hours per day. The label seems to be very specific in this wording, but if you read it closer, it is also allows for use in many areas that are not commonly occupied.
Unless you are living in your closet more than 4 hours a day, placing it in your closet could be considered an unoccupied area.
The question of safety is one that cannot be easily answered in a legal sense. Nothing is totally safe. Are you going to get sick if you use this product in your closet? I have not heard of a single case of anyone getting sick from using this product.
I know this is "beating around the bush" in answering your question. Would I use this product in my closet? Probably yes if the problem were bad enough, but only if I had also used other methods of control first such as traps, sprays, etc.
I would not use this product as a "single" means of control.
Hope this helps.
