Mothballs to Be Relabeled Soon

Mothballs to Be Relabeled Soon

It has been recently revealed in a report that the health authorities of Canada have planned a new way of making homes safer for children. The mothballs, which most children might find very attractive and fiddle worthy, are now going to be labeled better. This would ensure that kids keep away from them and don’t try them for candies, and land up in serious medical emergencies.

These are very essential to be kept at home for keeping clothes safe. It is, however, even more essential to ensure the safety of children. There are many cases in which children have eaten these moth balls, mistaking them for sweet treats.

“Children are at risk of eating mothballs because the product looks like candy. They can develop diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, lack of appetite, fever, abdominal pain and painful urination and dark urine”, said Health Canada.

Parents need to be really carful to keep such dangerous things out of reach of their children to ensure their safety. They need to be taught to keep away from such things. It needs to be seen how these new guidelines are going to help in making homes safer for kids in the time to come.
