    A recent study found the implementation of new custom bottle labels on over-the-counter medicines for adults decreased the number of child poisonings.

Although there were 54,000 reported incidents of accidental ingestion of adult medicine by children in 2010, that number was a significant reduction from the 80,000 in 2005, according to the report.
