Poison Control Centers Warn About Toxic Chemical in At-Home Virus Test Kits, Children At Higher Risk

Facts Matter

The National Poison Control Center, in a new official statement, is warning Americans of a toxic chemical that was found to be present in at-home COVID-19 test kits—specifically, in the test kits being sent out by the U.S. government to households across America. (See link for article)

____________________

Highlights:

  • The test kits are made in China.
  • The toxic ingredient is sodium azide, which is used as a preservative, propellant in automobile airbags, herbicides, and in pest control agents.
  • Sodium azide, when swallowed can cause low blood pressure, dizziness, headache, and heart palpitations, but in more severe cases, seizures, loss of consciousness, and DEATH may occur.  It is considered a very potent POISON.
  • If it is put on skin, it can cause irritation or chemical burns. It can cause nostril irritation.
  • Numerous test kits contain this chemical: BinaxNow, BD Veritor, Flowflex, and Celltrion DiaTrust.
  • Doctors across the country are seeing exposure to this toxic chemical.
  • Several poison centers throughout the United States have reported sodium azide exposures from the COVID-19 test kits. Goertemoeller estimated there have been 200-plus reported cases from the 55 poison centers nationwide. (Full article.)
  • If you suspect someone has been exposed, call the poison center at 800-222-1222.

I would like to point out the utter hypocrisy by comparing the SIX reports to the poison control center in the ivermectin deworming hoax, compared to the downplay of 200 reports due to COVID tests.

FDA Warns of Possible False Results From Some COVID-19 Tests

By Jack Phillips

March 2, 2022 Updated: March 2, 2022

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday said that three rapid COVID-19 tests should not be used because of the potential for producing false results.

The FDA told people to stop using:

  • Celltrion DiaTrust COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test
  • SD Biosensor Inc. STANDARD Q COVID-19 Ag Home Test
  • Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test (Self-Testing)

Summary:

  • all three tests are nasal swab tests
  • they are not authorized, cleared, or approved by the FDA
  • these tests have been recalled
  • Some poison control centers warned people not to improperly use at-home COVID-19 tests because they contain sodium azide, a potentially toxic substance. Some local poison control centers and hospitals have warned about an uptick in phone calls about exposures to the chemical.
