Household Chemicals – Danger, Beware! – a message from Health Canada

Household chemicals:  Danger, beware!

Each year, thousands of children in Canada visit emergency rooms after consuming hazardous household chemicals. Make sure your kids are safe by keeping them away from household chemicals like cleaning liquids and powders and drain cleaners.

If you think your kid drank something he shouldn’t have:

  • Call poison control.
  • Have the bottle close so you can refer to it.
  • Bring the product with you if you must go for help.
