                      Point-of-Sale Flyer

                      Vermont law requires that retailers display a safety information flyer at the point of purchase and offer the customer a copy of the flyer with each purchase.

                      If the customer chooses not to take the flyer, the retailer must inform the customer that if the customer elects not to receive the flyer, the information contained in the flyer is available on the website for the Board.

                      This flyer was developed by the Board in consultation with the Vermont Department of Health. It is available free of charge via the links below. Retailers are responsible for maintaining a sufficient printed flyer inventory.
