This newsletter addresses the potential of harmful ingestion by a child of medication in a child-resistant safety enclosure. Two incidents are described where children opened such containers themselves. In one case the child-resistant safety cap was not properly secured. In the other case, the bottle containing a liquid medication did not have a safety cap. Safety tips for the consumer are provided to prevent poisonings in children.
