Laundry Pod Injury Lawsuits

Tide Pods are single-load detergent capsules manufactured by Proctor & Gamble (P&G). Tide Pods pose a significant risk of injury to children and infants who may touch, chew, or ingest them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that the consumption of detergent pods has become an “emerging public health hazard.”

What are Tide Pods?

Tide Pods are concentrated detergent capsules intended for use in washing machines. Tide Pods can be more dangerous than conventional liquid detergents since they are so highly concentrated. Because the pods resemble candy, toys, or teething rings, children and infants may attempt to swallow or chew them. Injuries resulting from ingesting Tide Pods have also been reported among individuals with cognitive disabilities (such as dementia), visual impairments, and impulse disorders.

What is Happening with Tide Pods?

Incidents related to Tide Pods have become a major health concern. In 2017, Poison Control centers reported 12,299 calls related to Tide Pod injuries. Over 80 percent of those calls concerned children age 5 or younger who had bitten or swallowed the poisonous pods. Both the CDC and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued warnings about the dangers associated with the misuse of Tide Pods. The CDC published a report in 2012 describing the hazards that detergent pods pose to children, which prompted manufacturers to revise warnings on their labels. The CPSC issued an alert advising parents that the chemicals in the laundry detergent capsules are toxic and should be kept away from young children.

Tide Pods can cause a number of serious conditions if ingested or handled improperly. Chewing on the pod will typically cause the wrapping to dissolve or tear. The poisonous liquid can squirt in the eyes, go down the throat, or make contact with the skin, which can cause severe burns to the eyes, skin and inner lining of the mouth due to the alkali in the detergent. If swallowed, the detergent can damage the lining of the esophagus and stomach. Blindness, sleepiness, comas, and even death in young children have been reported in incidents involving Tide Pods.

Lawsuits against P&G allege that the company is selling and marketing an unreasonably dangerous product and has failed to implement design changes to create a safer product. Although P&G has taken some measures to make their products less appealing and accessible to young children, it is clear that these efforts are inadequate to prevent Tide Pods from causing potentially devastating injuries to vulnerable users.
