Please help with this bush

Hi I live in Wisconsin near Green Bay and Lake Michigan. I have two of these bushes in my yard and I cannot figure out what they are. My wife thinks blueberries but I have never seen a blueberry bush with leaves like this.

Ribes nigrum (Black Currant) I think, but not familiar enough with it to be certain.

And here is a picture of an individual berry. I would appreciate any info. I have a small child and would like to know if this is dangerous.

THANKS!

As stated above. Ribes nigrum, Black Currant. Massively high in Vitamin C - excellent eating for your small child.
