#DYK that cooler weather allows for #WildMushrooms to grow at a rapid rate? Some of these mushrooms are #poisonous and can be found in your yard, so be sure that you and your family stay away from these yard mushrooms. More #autumn #PoisonHelp tips: http://bit.ly/3qghBVF

🦃HAPPY THANKSGIVING 🦃
From our homes to yours, all of us at Florida’s Poison Control Centers wish you a very happy #Thanksgiving.
We are available if you need us, today and every holiday, at 1-800-222-1222.
Traveling for #Thanksgiving? Keep medication somewhere it isn't accessible to small children. If you’re staying with family or friends, double check their home for any potential dangers too. We’re here throughout the weekend at 1-800-222-1222.
As holiday shopping kicks off, a reminder about those small magnetic balls, aka rare earth magnets. Never leave them unattended around children. They are extremely powerful and can pierce holes inside the intestines if swallowed. #ToxTuesday https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/new-jersey-boy-who-swallowed-toy-magnets-needed-surgery-holes-n1248270
Before using a pesticide near water, check the label for environmental hazard statements and special directions for use. Never use a pesticide just before heavy rain or allow granules to remain on hard surfaces.
