Recently, LIndsey Tanner wrote an article describing the dangerous effects Laundry Pods have had in homes with small children. Pediatrics published a study online exposing the dangers of these small, colorful (almost toy or candy like) "pods". While they might be economical, efficient and cute to look at, the manufacturers must do something about the dangers they pose to small children.
You can read the article by Lindsey Tanner here.
Further, I am including a link to the research available from Poison Control.
769 children have been hospitalized for getting into these little packets. This is unacceptable to me.
If your little one was injured as a result of a laundry pod, please call our office immediately.
We care about the well being of your child!
