You’d think it has something inside for children.
In reality, it is a powerful rat poison that federal and state authorities in New York seized recently after five months of undercover work.
I would not be surprised if the same product has reached Manila since we are nearer China.
The problem with this product is it contains a powerful chemical called brodifacoum that could kill even children. And the way it is packaged is quite attractive to children.
So just be careful.
Even if there are no children in your house, don’t buy it. A woman in New York mistook it for her medicine and fell seriously ill.
Maybe you should report to authorities if you see the same product.
The Bureau of Customs, together with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, should not even allow this product into the country.
