Thousands of children harmed by colorful detergent pods in 2015

Posted under Product Liability

According to Consumer Reports, poison control has received calls about over 6,000 children who have come in contact with colorful detergent pods just in the first half of 2015, either by ingesting the concentrated detergent or getting the product on their skin or in their eyes, an article of Channel 3000 reported on August 2.

The highly-concentrated detergents enclosed in colorful pods were introduced to the market in 2012 and since its introduction consumers have been warned about the potential dangers of the product for young children. Though the Consumer Reports commended detergent manufacturer’s efforts to make the pods less child friendly, consumers are advised to refrain from using the products, especially families with children under 6 years of age.
