You might want to share these with other family members. And, while you're at it, be sure that you have the Poison Control phone number on, near, or programmed into every phone: 1-800-222-1222.
Did we miss anything that's important to you? Call 1-800-222-1222. Poison specialists will answer your call 24-hours a day - holidays, too. It's OK to call with a question.
