Laundry Detergent Packets - American Association of Poison Control Centers

Medical experts say the consequences of ingesting these products can be dire.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported six adults suffering from cognitive impairment, along with two children, have died as a result of ingesting the pods.

According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, poison control centers received reports of more than 10,500 exposures to highly concentrated paced of laundry detergent by children 5 and younger in 2017.

Since then, videos of teens putting Tide Pods in their mouth and even cooking with them have been making the rounds online, USA Today reports.

Doctors add that the pods pose serious health risks for children who put them in their mouths.

At the same time, the absorbable portions of the laundry pod that have made their way into your stomach and GI tract can migrate into your bloodstream and vital organs, including your brain. "Tide Debuts New Sour Apple Detergent Pods", @TheOnion tweeted, along with a photo of a faux Tide Pods ad.

A Tide spokesperson told CBS News the pods were not meant to "be played with".

Omo Pods are another similar brand found in Australia.

Dr. Krug says once you eat it, the damage is done.

We've all seen some pretty random stuff across the internet but the latest viral trend of teenagers filming themselves eating laundry pods probably tops the list for stupidity.

"Our laundry pacs are highly concentrated detergent meant to clean clothes, and they're safely used in millions of households everyday", the statement read. In a video uploaded to their official YouTube channel, #Tide shows just how easy it can be to keep the pods away from your children.

The concept of eating Tide pods, the freaky temptation to eat them, warnings not to eat them, and the serious physical damage done by eating them, all spread more intensively as an online meme and cultural touchstone in the later months of 2017, as New York Magazine documented.
