Almost 500 cases of accidental exposure to laundry detergent capsules (pods) were reported to poison control centers during May and June 2012. The majority of cases involved children 5 years old or younger. The most frequent adverse health effects were vomitting and coughing/choking. Although pod packaging is very convenient for the user, it often looks like candy to a child.
PositiveTip: Keep all household cleaners out of sight and reach of young children.
