Former Teen Mom star Chelsea Houska posted a new photo to Instagram with her son, 5-year-old Watson.

Former “Teen Mom” ​​star Chelsea Houska faced some backlash after posting a new ad on Instagram. She partnered with Duracell to promote their lithium
coin battery and told her 6.6 million Instagram followers that the potential choking hazard was not a concern. Not everyone on social media was convinced of this, and some of the top responses under her post came from people who were concerned.

Houska held her son, 5-year-old Watson, on her lap and kissed him on the cheek. In the background, a Christmas tree shines with delicate ornaments and white lights. In her left hand she held up a pack of Duracell batteries.

Houska started the post by saying how much she loves the holidays. “Christmas and Christmas decorating is literally my favorite”, She wrote. “I love the lights, the fake flame
candles, the decorations. Ever since I became a parent, I have been very conscious of batteries
Go into these devices.”

In the second part of her post, Houska talked about how Duracell made its lithium coin cells safer.

“They are small coin batteries that pose a choking hazard if your child tries
putting them in your mouth,” she explained. “So I felt relieved when I learned @duracell has manufactured a lithium button battery with child-resistant packaging and a bitter coating so that if one of the children picked it up and put the battery in their mouth, it would stop them from swallowing.

Houska ended the promotion by saying she felt safe using the item and explained to her followers how they could learn more about lithium coin cells.

“I love that Duracell makes these because it gives me a little peace of mind (so much ease
it can be as a mom of 4!),” she said. “Look out for the bitter face symbol on Duracell packaging and make sure you take the Duracell Power Safely Check Quiz to learn more about lithium coin cell safety.”

Fans weren’t convinced by Houska’s post

All of the top comments on Houska’s Instagram post came from people who doubted Duracell’s safety.

“Not even just a choking hazard, but a serious death hazard,” reads the top answer.

Other people asked Houska to do more research on the item she was selling.

“I’ve always been a huge fan, but please do some research and reconsider getting paid to promote these deadly items,” they said.

A third person warned that suffocation is not the worst thing that can happen. “It’s worse than a ‘choking hazard.’ These will literally burn a hole in your child from the inside out,” they claimed.

Heavy reached out to Houska’s rep to comment on the situation, but received no response.

Lithium batteries can be dangerous

Houska said the “bitter coating” on the batteries might deter children from swallowing them. But she said nothing about what would happen if the battery was swallowed.

On Duracell’s Security QuizThey warned that “serious damage” can result if a battery gets stuck in a child’s throat.

“A lithium button battery can get stuck in your child’s esophagus and burn through surrounding tissue in as little as two hours, causing serious damage,” they write. “If you suspect your child has swallowed a lithium button cell, act quickly.”

Corresponding poison controla battery stuck in a child’s throat for more than two hours can lead to “surgery, months of feeding and breathing tubes, and even death.”
