Health & Safety
We are committed to increasing public awareness of the potential hazards associated with balloons and balloon-related products in order to reduce incidents, accidents and death. Please take a moment to read through the following to ensure you are aware of the potential hazards and advice on how to avoid them.
Fully inflated balloons do not present a hazard to young children, however, burst balloons can be exceedingly dangerous.
Once a balloon has burst, immediately throw away the pieces. Children can be tempted to chew pieces of latex or even stretch them over their mouths to blow bubbles. There is a danger of the latex being drawn into the mouth and subsequently blocking airways.
Like other natural things people are allergic to such as bee stings and peanuts, latex can also cause allergic reactions ranging from minor skin irritation to anaphylaxis in a very small percentage of the population.
However, latex allergy doesn’t have to mean missing out on the joy of balloons, there are now a number of non-latex balloon alternatives on the market such as foil balloons and plastic bubble balloons.
Many Products contain string components, these need to be kept away from children as it can cause them to choke or suffocate.
The following warnings apply to both latex and foil balloons:
• Read all instructions and warnings before using the balloons
• Inflate balloons using a pump, away from the face & eyes
• Where applicable or supervising, always use un-inflated balloons away from young children.
