Button batteries can be found in many things, including flashlights, keychains, toys with lights/sounds, thermometers, remotes, flameless candles & hearing aids. Watch children carefully around any such device, and make sure caregivers know the risks.
Button battery injuries can be hard to diagnose if caregivers don't know the battery was swallowed. Keep batteries and products containing these batteries up and away and out of reach of kids. #ButtonBatteries #InjuryPrevention #Kids https://ktvz.com/health/2021/04/13/se-oregon-toddler-faces-serious-medical-issues-after-swallowing-tiny-battery/
