Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Mercury is a danger element and spillage of the same must be acted upon immediately, it definitely carries a risk and it is advised to discard the bottles immediately and make sure no human contact happens with the same and the spillage must be collected with precautions and disposed immediately.
If the kids have consumed the same,see the doctor at earliest.
