    Good morning all,

    Per ...

    Note: "Keep items in their original container and ...". This is IMPORTANT for those evacuating in a wilderness type of terrain. Visibility can be limited, you're tired, and all the rest.......

    I believe the Poison Control Center 800 telephone number in the article links the caller to the nearest center.

    Good info. Thanks for posting. I don't know how many of us have little ones around either children or grandchildren, but this is a frightening story that at least has a good outcome. Who would have thought popcorn could be so dangerous.

    The Harriet Lane Handbook is a reference for doctors that aren't pediatricians on how to treat children. Chapter 2 is on poisonings, including antidotes and some info on supportive care that would generally apply to both children and adults (and likely pets/livestock in many cases too). For a time when calling 911/poison control isn't an option.
