The Bottom Line

Keep your children safe during travel and holiday events by following seasonal tips from Poison Control.

The Full Story

No one invites poison to a holiday gathering - at least not on purpose. Check out our round-up of tips for poison-free holidays before your holidays get crazy. 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. Of course, if you think anyone has swallowed a poison, too much medicine, a battery, too much alcohol, or bad food, give Poison Control a call right away.
