Small children love to explore their
surroundings. They are also curious about their bodies. To prevent children
from inserting objects into their ears:
Supervise young children, especially children
younger than age 5, to reduce the risk that they will put objects in their ears
or other body openings, such as the mouth, nose, rectum, or
Keep all objects small enough to be swallowed or inserted
into body openings away from small children. Warn children not to put any
object into a body opening.
Store all disc batteries in a safe
place out of the reach of children. Properly dispose of used disc batteries out
of the reach of children.
