Balloon safety warnings

 

  • NEVER under any circumstances inhale, or allow anyone else to inhale, helium balloon gas. This can cause asphyxiation, leading to unconsciousness and DEATH due to lack of oxygen.
  • Children must be supervised at all times when using balloons. Warning: children can choke or suffocate on uninflated balloons. Discard broken balloons at once and keep uninflated balloons away from children.
  • Many balloon sticks come in two pieces; a cup, which attaches to the balloon, and a stick. The cup is fairly small and may present a choking hazard should it become loose.
  • Adults should inflate balloons for children. Always use a hand pump (or similar) to inflate the balloons.
  • Never put a balloon, or piece of a balloon, in or near the mouth.
  • Always discard broken balloons safely.
  • Balloon decoration is purely for decorative purposes only. Balloons of Stafford cannot be held responsible for any accident or injury following the misuse of balloons.
  • Latex can occasionally cause allergic reactions. There are, however, many non-latex balloons available such as foil balloons and plastic bubble balloons.
