tbb/concurrent_bounded_queue - multiple consumer

I am using the tbb concurrent bounded queue , class, for a single producer - mutlple consumer version. Curious if the semantics of tbb concurrent bounded queue allow for multiple consumers ?
TBB version:tbb30_20110427oss
In other words - if there are many threads , that are waiting for:
Worker thread:
MyRequest req;
q->pop(req); //blocking call to receive the request by a worker thread.
Would multiple consumer consuming off the same queue, result in nasty race condition or the semantics are ok with the same ?

If you don't trust what the Reference has to say, perhaps this quote from the header file helps:

"Multiple threads may each push and pop concurrently."
