Laundry Pod Risks
These pods often appear as candy to very young children and even adults with dementia, and they are extremely poisonous.
The Poison Control Center has received almost 73,000 reports involving the pods from 2012 to 2017. Of the 8 deaths caused by the pods, only 2 of them were children and the other 6 were from adults with dementia.
There have even been injuries where the pods have burst and squirted chemicals into the eyes of the user.
Laundry Pod Storage Tips
- If you have young children or adults with dementia living in your home the safest option would be to buy other laundry products
- Keep the product in a place were children cannot reach
- Always store the pods in their original container with the lid closed
- If living with an adult with Alzheimer’s or dementia keep pods in a locked cabinet
