Laundry Pods: A Deadly Danger

When you think of laundry, you usually think of a chore or perhaps fresh sheets, but you usually don’t think of danger. However in the last two years a new product has appeared that may change that. The new laundry pods are here and they are convenient, colorful, and popular. However in the hands of a young child they can be fatal. Two weeks ago a baby died after ingesting one of these laundry detergent pods.

In the last year alone more than 6,000 children under 5 years old have ingested these laundry pods, with more than 3,000 of them needing to go to the emergency room. And the trend continues to increase.

These pods are brightly colored and about the size of a

small cake or candy. They are very attractive colors (Orange white and blue) and about the right size for their small hands. In a recent test of 2 year olds (who were closely watched for safety), the 2 year olds picked up the laundry pods before they chose a piece of actual candy! Here in Ohio we have had more than 350 children ingest these pods.

Symptoms from ingestion can be vomiting, oral burns, airway swelling and burns, breathing difficulty, decreased consciousness. This new product should be kept out of reach of your children and out of sight. High up and in a locked cabinet are good ideas. If you think your child has ingested one sweep out the mouth. Do not make them vomit (but they may vomit spontaneously) . Then call the poison center and you will get an expert immediately.

So if you have small children in the home, remember that wonderful curious nature may sometimes get them into trouble. If you have questions call the poison center at 1-800-222-1222. Save the number in your cell phone or call for a free magnet with the poison center number and an information packet how to poison proof your home.
