San Francisco – With the holiday shopping season officially underway, the American Academy of Ophthalmology is reminding consumers that keeping safety in mind when buying toys for children can help prevent toy-related eye injuries.
With the holiday season underway, people are feeling festive – including at work. But whether you’re decorating your cubicle or taking part in the office potluck, safety should always remain a top priority.
Silver Spring, MD – When you’re baking cookies or making a cake, do you or your kids lick the bowl or spoon? If so, the Food and Drug Administration wants you to know that eating or handling raw dough or batter can lead to illness.
A child was treated in an emergency department every three minutes in 2011 for a toy-related injury, and more than 3 million children were treated for similar injuries from 1990 to 2011, according to a study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
