Drain Cleaner Burned Baby at Day Care

January 5, 2011  ·  By HM&M


A recent Pennsylvania case highlights the need to keep household products and infant care products in separate places. A Pennsylvania personal injury attorney says “a 7-month-old girl was burned by drain cleaner that soaked her diaper while she was at a Pittsburgh-area day care.” (J. Mandak, AP Pittsburgh, 1/4).

As a Chicago personal injury lawyer, I would like to remind all parents and anyone handling young children to keep children's products away from dangerous household chemicals.
