Do you have a poisonous purse?

Have you ever been somewhere with a fussy baby you needed to distract and reached in your handbag to find something for them to play with?

Your purse may be more dangerous than you realize.

Many of us have handbags very similar to the one below. They are filled with many useful everyday products that can be harmful if a child or pet gets into them. To help prevent purse poisonings:

  • Keep your purse where pets and kids can’t reach it.
  • Avoid giving children household products to play with.

Call the poison center at 1-800-222-1222 or chat online if your child or pet gets into any of these products.
