Dangerous Cleaning Products: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:33 by admin
Household cleaning items can pose a serious poisoning threat to children. While the Poison Prevention Packaging Act requires that household chemicals be packaged in child resistant containers, accidents continue to occur. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that over 50 children die from such poisonings each year and over 50,000 are hospitalized. These figures emphasize the importance of keeping dangerous household chemicals in their proper containers and out of the reach of children.

If your child has been injured or killed by a household cleaning product, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
