COIN CELL SAFETY

Coin Cell Safety Awareness and Packaging to Help Keep Your Family Safe


Think our packaging is impossible to open? We did that on purpose. In 2014, we voluntarily introduced child-resistant packaging, because RAYOVAC® cares about you and your family's safety. In the US, approximately 3,500 people swallow button batteries every year, 65% are children 6 years and under*. Safety is a priority here at RAYOVAC®.
