ADXL345 in high G environment

I am looking to use the ADXL345 in a new design. Generally it will be sensing around +-8g, however there are regular spikes in acceleration up to +-50g for brief periods (30 ms blips every 4 seconds). I realise the ADXL345 will max out during these periods, but I would like to know

  1. will this do the device any harm?
  2. will it affect the calibration of the device?
