Prevent accidental poisoning this holiday season by knowing the risks to your children. There are poisoning risks everywhere.  Certain plants can be poisonous.  Grandmother’s purse is a big risk, as likely there’s medication of some sort in there. Antifreeze which has dripped onto the garage floor or driveway tastes sweet and is a risk both to children and pets. Something as small as a cigarette butt can be toxic if ingested by a child. Keep the poison control number in your phone and on the refrigerator: 1-800-222-1222.
