Poison Control and CPS: Is this true?

My daughter just got into a tube of Icy Hot. I have NO IDEA where she found it!!! I called poison control and they said she'll be fine. My dad just told me that when you call Poison Control, CPS launches and investigation of your house. IS THAT TRUE? That just seems crazy to me! Does anyone know?

 I don't believe that for one minute.  I mean, if you call repeatedly, perhaps, but I doubt it.

No not at all.  We had to when my daughter drank a printer refill kit, in fact we had to go to the ER and they told me that if it became a pattern that then they would begin an investigation.

I don't think that is true. I had to call poison control because my daughter got into some hand sanatizer a couple of months ago and I was never investigated by cps that I know of. Poison control did call me back a couple of days later for a follow up, but that was all I ever heard about it.

 No its not true. I've called poison control numerous times and have never been investigated by cps.

that's not true and spreading ridiculous rumors like that is going to cause idiot parents to not call and kids to die. I could see  if you were calling constantly or in the ER constantly for stuff like that, but one time - it means you are being a responsible parent and seeking help!

They shouldn't unless you call repeatedly. Kids will be kids and they are always eating stuff they aren't supposed to.
