Latex balloon risk issued

The following warning has been issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

Latex balloons can present a serious risk to children under 8 years of age.

Death can result when a child inhales a portion of a balloon while playing with an uninflated or broken balloon. Red and pink balloons present a special risk, as the color of these balloons makes it difficult to see them when inhaled.

Mylar and paper balloons are considered far safer for children, especially those under 8 years of age.
