SAFETY NOTICE Balloons are, by nature, temporary items. Although Rachel’s Balloons & Gifts uses only the finest quality balloons,some balloons will occasionally deflate sooner than expected and will also be adversely affected by wind, rain, rough handling, sunlight and other uncontrollable factors. Latex balloons pose no threat to humans, wildlife or the environment WHEN handled responsibly. Broken or uninflated balloons can cause harm to young children and pets and should be disposed of immediately. Children under the age of 8 should be under constant adult supervision while playing with latex balloons. Balloons are a choking hazard and clients are responsible for not giving balloons to children three (3) years of age and younger. Our latex balloons are 100% biodegradable, but should not be released. They should be popped and disposed of. Inhaling helium can cause dizziness, nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness and even death. Under no circumstances inhale helium from balloons or from a helium tank. Inhaling helium is dangerous and can result in asphyxiation.
