Button Battery Safety: Industry and Academic Partnerships to Drive Change.

The pediatric button battery (BB) hazard has been recognized for several decades. In 2012, the National Button Battery Task Force was established, and most manufacturers have improved warning labels, more secure packaging, and made BB compartments in products are more secure. Tissue neutralization before BB removal (ie, honey or sucralfate/Carafate®) is an effective way to reduce the rate of BB injury. In absence of visible perforation, 0.25% sterile acetic acid esophageal tissue irrigation at time of BB removal is recommended as a neutralization strategy to mitigate injury progression. Future BB design changes could eliminate esophageal tissue injury.
