and safe storage.”

Bitrex, the most widely used bittering agent in the world, has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Record as the “bitterest substance known to man.” An extremely small amount of Bitrex makes most products unpalatable. Bitrex enhances the safety of a household chemical product by providing a flavor so foul that young children reject it after an initial taste.

“Extreme bitter taste is an excellent barrier to product ingestion,” said Dr. Christina Gong, a veterinarian in Portland, Oregon, “but should be used with safety education, the most powerful deterrent to accidental poisonings.”

The seven states have passed legislation mandating the use of bittering agents in certain chemical products. Federal and other state legislators are currently considering similar proposed requirements. The use of bittering agents is supported by the American Medial Association, the National Safety Council and Poison Control Centers in the US and abroad.

Bitrex is made by Macfarlan Smith, Ltd., a 200 year old pharmaceutical company based in Edinburgh Scotland.
