In order to reduce the risk of poisoning in children due to accidental ingestion of hazardous chemicals like over – the – counter (OTC) medications, household items, pesticides & automobile chemicals, led the US Congress to pass the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970 under the authorship of US Senator Frank E. Moss (Politician)1. The introduction of child resistant packaging resulted in considerable drop in the rate of poisoning.
