Laundry Detergent Pods Can Be Just As Dangerous For Seniors As For Kids

Quote:


Since Tide Pods hit the market in 2012, laundry detergent pods have quickly become popular. Unfortunately, they also resulted in reports of kids biting into these shiny, candy-colored packets of poison. New data shows that itís not just children who are at risk of this potentially lethal confusion; several seniors with dementia have died after consuming detergent pods.

Of the eight deaths directly related to laundry pods in the last five years, two were children ó but six were seniors with dementia, a new report from our colleagues at Consumer Reports (Consumeristís parent company) finds.
