Unsafe new craze has rebellious youth eating laundry detergent

Tide Pod Challenge Unsafe new craze has rebellious youth eating laundry detergent

He says: "I didn't think you could eat them but they look so tasty", before putting the detergent pod into his mouth.

As Buzzfeed noted, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission felt compelled to speak out this weekend against the "Tide Pods challenge" that may well be poisoning thousands of... trend-followers.

A quick YouTube search returns a thread of videos showing people eating the pods and gagging.

The challenge has gone viral with countless memes, videos and pictures posted on different social media outlets encouraging others to join in. In some videos, teens "cook" the pods in a frying pan before consuming them.

He hit.242 with a.287 on-base percentage, a.355 slugging percentage, three homers and 30 RBIs. The 35-year-old five-time all-star has been a Gold Glove victor and Silver Slugger recipient.

Ingredients in the pods include ethanol, hydrogen peroxide and polymers-a highly toxic mix of detergent meant to wipe out dirt and grime, according to a CBS News report.

The pods are bright and colorful, causing some children to believe they are candy.

Back in 2015, the Onion published a joking article from the perspective of a child wondering what it would be like to eat the highly enticing red and blue-colored detergent, looking like sweets. "A lot of people were just saying how stupid I was or...why would I be willing to do that", said Marc Pagan. "No one should be putting anything like that in their mouths, you know?"

Children who have ingested detergent from the packets have required medical attention and hospitalization for loss of consciousness, excessive vomiting, drowsiness, throat swelling, and difficulty breathing. Two of those deaths were toddlers and eight were seniors with dementia. The idea of eating Tide capsules was a recurring joke a few weeks ago; now kids are actually trying to ingest them.
