National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW), is nationally designed to highlight the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent them. However, every day people can and do prevent poisonings. We believe that safety is a partnership between those who make safe packages and design warning labels, and the consumer.
- The National Poison Prevention council encourages you to have the poison control
number handy: 1-800-222-1222
- Remember, safety packages are child RESISTANT, not child proof
- Keep hazardous substances up-and-away and out of site

In honor of this week, the council held a nationwide video contest for grades K - 12. Many kids submitted great videos focusing on this year's theme, Poison Prevention/Safety - Own it.
Congratulations goes out to our Grand Prize Winners Edward, Jordance and Belle from Jacksonville, FL. Check out their video here: You've Been Schooled

As a manufacturer of child resistant closures, it is important to our team at Mold-Rite to also take the next step in keeping children safe.
