It doesn't appear as though any of the product is missing, and a smell of the product could not be detected on the child's breath or person. The caller suspected that the child may have gotten some of the product on her hands and then may have touched her face and eyes, as well as sucked on her fingers. The child's eyes appear slightly red and she is complaining of an upset stomach. GH NKA PCP#14116 R. Irrigate eye(s) for 20 30 minutes under a gentle stream of lukewarm water.
