Safety reminders for little "goblins"

October 25, 2012

One of the most common calls to the Nebraska Regional Poison Center this time of year involves glow sticks - the plastic tubes that are filled with a glowing liquid. Last year the Poison Center had 282 calls concerning this product – this is an increase from the previous year. The glow sticks make children more visible in the dark while trick‐or‐ treating – but they are soft to chew on and can be easily broken open. If children get some of the liquid in their mouth or eye there is no need to run to an emergency room. Call the Poison Center and the specialist will tell you what you need to do.
