Dear Friends,

Since many of you enjoy skiing and snowboarding this time of 
year, I wanted to include some safety tips to prevent 
injuries while enjoying your favorite winter sports. One of 
the most important ways you can protect yourself is by wear-
ing a helmet to prevent head injuries from falls and 
collisions. Check out some more tips in today's issue.

Be sure to visit the Safety Bulletin blog:

Stay Safe,
Pam

       FISHER-PRICE RECALLS MUSICAL LEARNING CHAIRS

Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, N.Y., is recalling about 
614,000 Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Musical Learning Chairs. 
A child can become lodged between the seatback and side 
table of the chair, possibly leading to an entrapment of 
the neck. This can pose a strangulation hazard to young 
children. The recalled Laugh & Learn Musical Learning Chair 
is a plastic infant toy that measures about 17 inches high. 
It features a blue chair with four green plastic legs and a 
side table with a purple base and white top. The table holds 
a clock, book, and a lamp. Smiley faces are displayed on the 
lamp and seat back. Discount department stores and toy stores 
nationwide sold the chair from May 2005 through January 2006 
for about $27. Consumers should contact Fisher-Price to 
receive a free repair kit. Call (866) 552-3914 anytime or

       TARGET RECALLS MINI AND CHASING LIGHT SETS

sized and exposed wires, which pose a risk of electric shock

mini light sets, 100-count blue mini light sets, and 140-

            CAUTION URGED IN ANTIBIOTIC USE   

The U.S. government is urging Americans to be cautious about   
using antibiotics as treatment for respiratory infections.   
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta is   
running a series of print and radio public service announce-   
ments to counter the public perception antibiotics can cure   
everything, says Dr. Richard Besser, director of the   
campaign. "Taking antibiotics when they are not needed can   
cause some bacteria to become resistant to the antibiotic,"   
he says. "The fact is these resistant bacteria are stronger   
and harder to kill. They can stay in your body and cause   
severe illnesses that can't be cured with antibiotics. It's   
so important to get smart about antibiotic use and work with   
your doctor to get the right remedy."   


              PERSISTENT SNORING NOT NORMAL   

Persistent snoring -- the result of the airway being par-   
tially obstructed -- is not normal and may require a doctor's   
attention, say Texas researchers. "For mild snoring cases,   
changes in body or head position may be sufficient," says Dr.   
John Truelson, of University of Texas Southwestern Medical   
Center in Dallas. "Nasal airway problems often contribute to   
the problem as well -- patients with sleep apnea may be   
treated with devices or with surgery." Sleep apnea is a   
potentially serious problem because people periodically stop   
breathing while asleep, preventing delivery of oxygen to the   
lungs. The condition carries risks including higher incidence   
of hypertension, stroke or heart attack.

             @ SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING SAFETY @


Follow these tips from The U.S. Consumer Product Safety 
Commission (CPSC):

* Select the right equipment, and make sure items such as 
bindings and boots are adjusted to fit properly.
 
* Make sure you have the proper training, and don't ski or 
snowboard beyond your ability. 

* Ski and snowboard in control, and follow the rules of the 
slopes. 

* Never ski or snowboard alone. Make sure someone is there 
to help you if you get hurt. 

* Get in shape before you hit the slopes. Making sure you 
are physically fit before you ski or snowboard can help 
prevent injuries. 

* Wear warm, close-fitting clothing. Loose clothing can 
become entangled in lifts, tow ropes and ski poles.
