If you have ipecac in your first aid kit or at home, please check the
expiration date. A couple years ago, I needed to administer ipecac, but
found the expiration date on my bottle had expired. (Poison control
specifically told me not to administer it if expired.) I called every
neighbor. Each neighbor with kids had purchased a bottle of ipecac when
their first child was born, but had never updated the bottle. Every
bottle in the neighborhood had expired+ACE- So, please check those dates.
+AD4- After going through the Troop first aid kit, several items
+AD4- had to be thrown out due to expiration dates.
