We’d have parents call in ALL. THE. TIME about it. And we’d just send them to poison control. A lot of people freak out because they do ask your name and address (maybe? mabe just your name) but I’m sure that is just for tracking purposes. They must have write down what they told people anyway — as a legality precuation (stupid lawyers… that one needs its own TMI Tuesday post!). I guess if you were calling too often they might think something’s up….
They have all the info (MSDS sheets and all that jazz) for EVERYTHING. They are geniuses with poison. If you know someone who works there… you should be extra nice to them. Know what I mean?
The poison control number for the US is:
There, go write it down somewhere and tack it where you’ll need it.
Of course, the best protection against poisoning is to not have the stuff out in the first place, and also educate older children who are smarter about child protective devices. It’d be awful to ever think my carelessness lead to injurying my kid. I mean, any more then it already does.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
