Accidents Can Be Easily Prevented

Keep Liquid Laundry Packets Out Of Reach
 

Exposure to liquid laundry packets among young children remains an issue. In fact, an ACI consumer survey found that 61% of parents are storing laundry packets in-sight or in-reach of children. Proper use and storage of these liquid laundry packets is essential in preventing accidental exposures.

There are a variety of things you can do to prevent accidental exposures during National Poison Prevention Week (March 20-26, 2016) and beyond.

The liquid inside these pre-measured packets is harmful if put in the mouth, swallowed or gets in the eye. Immediately call Poison Help at 1-800-222-1222 if there is an accident.

Prevention is simple.

Here’s what you can do:
  • Always store this product up and out of sight and reach of your children
  • Never let your children handle laundry packets
  • Never puncture or pull packets apart
  • Always keep product container securely closed
  • Always remember to read product label
