Swallowing lithium coin batteries is life-threatening
#PowerSafely – An EAP-Duracell partnership
The European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP) and the battery manufacturer Duracell have launched a joint campaign to drive awareness of the dangers of swallowing coin batteries, in particular related to Lithium Coin batteries, for children. To help keep families safe, they are joining forces to “power safely”. Together, they are educating parents and caregivers about the dangers of swallowing lithium coin batteries – and how to prevent it.
