Default Button Batteries - Serious Consequences for Toddlers

Serious Consequences for Toddlers


Last week I heard a sad story about a young couple that lives out here in my neighborhood whose toddler was critically ill and had undergone radical removal of a section of her esophagus from a partially swallowed Lithium Button Battery. First it seemed bazaar: But then I saw this CBS report this morning..
.....the shear number of occurrences are stark. 3,500 cases each year. .......2 hours to produce a form galvanic corrosion even with a 'dead' battery that is commonly non-diagnosed........

To all the young or old parents and grandparents; anyone/anywhere..with .....'young ones' .....Take a full accounting of all these 'cells' that may exist or enter the environment.... and especially the many devices that use them.
