There are over 17, 000 cases of children eating detergent pods according to the Poison Control centers across America. Specifically between 2012 and 2013.
Pretty crazy. I’ve never thought that detergent pods would be an issue. I put my trust in the parents to put their detergent somewhere safe but I guess they were forgetful or ignorant.
To be completely honest, those pods look tasty. Especially the ones from Tide because of the similarity to candy. Of course I’m not going to try putting these in my mouth due to the education I received from others and especially my “parents.”
So if your kids are able to understand you, it’s probably a good idea to teach some basics of safety.
