Doctors warn parents about look alike products dangerous to children

ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – In 2013 twenty-eight hundred parents call the specialist at the Missouri Poison Control Center at Cardinal Glennon concerning kids who were exposed to cleaning products either by mistake or access.

Doctors say that many products that we eat or drink also have counterparts that look alike. As an example, sports drinks that can look similar to some cleaning solutions that can easily fool a child.

The packaging can be confusing to children znd parents. That confusion can  lead to tragic results, and doctors want to get the word out to parents to safely store away dangerous look alike products out of the reach of children, and to read all product labels.
