Poison Center staff members stress that careful review of all treats by parents is the best prevention for poisoning incidents.

If children are experiencing any symptoms following ingestion of food or candy, parents should call the California Poison Control System-San Diego Division at (800) 876-4766. The Center is open 24-hours per day, seven days a week.
