    Consumer Reports Calls for Laundry Pod Ban in Family Homes

    Consumer Reports is warning parents that laundry detergent pods should never be used in homes where young children live of visit. 

    Over the last several years, Poison Control Centers have fielded an increased number of calls about children eating, inhaling, or getting the laundry detergent serum on their skin.

    However, Proctor and Gamble, the maker of the Tide, Gain, and Ariel laundry pods, has said the number of reports involving its pods is falling relative to sales and that most calls resulted in minor to no medical treatment actually, according to "Today."
