Keep Button Batteries Away From Children
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) When you give your child an electronic toy this Christmas, remember one important thing.
Keep coin lithium battery–controlled devices out of children's hands.
If they're loose, place a piece of duct tape over the controller.
According to Safe Kids, each year more than 2,800 children are treated in the Emergency Room after swallowing button batteries. That's a child every three hours.
The number of serious injuries or deaths have increased nine-fold in the last ten years.
Children's toys, calculators, even singing greeting cards all contain button batteries.
