A List Of Regional Poison Control Centers Found In The U.S.A.

Why regional centers are the best. The regional centers that are members of the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) have the best information available and are staffed by full-time paid professionals, not volunteers. The AAPCC uses a computer generated database, called Poisindex, of more than 400,000 products, their ingredients and the best antidotes. The information is updated 4 times a year. Poisindex has an informal contract with the major manufactures of chemical products to list any new products or changes that might not be on the label. And keep in mind that 6,000 new products are authorized for sale each year by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
