Battery safety alert information

Due to recent safety concerns - remember to keep your hearing aid batteries out of sight and out of reach of children and pets to prevent them being swallowed. This could be in a raised cabinet, or a cupboard locked with a key or child-locking mechanism. If you drop a battery then pick it up straight away. It’s important to consider that curious pets such as dogs have also been known to swallow hearing aid batteries.

If your child has swallowed a hearing aid battery, seek immediate medical attention. If your pet has swallowed a hearing aid battery it’s advised that you seek veterinary attention as soon as possible. When changing out hearing aid batteries avoid placing the battery in your mouth or holding it between your lips. This can contaminate the battery, or more seriously lead to accidental ingestion. When the batteries run out, keep them somewhere secure and safe until such a time that you can take them to a place for safe disposal via recycling.
