Enough teenagers have engaged in the Tide Pod challenge that it's warranted public health scrutiny. Not because of a challenge, and definitely not because they for some reason look delicious.
And while I can't say if it tastes like the real thing, the Tide Pod-based donut at Hurts was pretty darn good. Consumer Reports warns that while the exact blend of ingredients in any laundry pod is proprietary, they generally contain a toxic mix of ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and long-chain polymers that are can burn through the lining of your stomach. What are some symptoms you might experience? No one should be putting anything like that in their mouths, you know?' Sometimes it squirts in your eye.
Kids could require a food tube implanted into their stomach to keep them nourished while they undergo multiple surgeries to fix the throat damage, he added. However, to anyone with half a brain, it should be understood that eating laundry detergent is a bad idea.

"We want to remind people these are highly concentrated detergents meant to clean clothes". The shop plans to make them for the next few days, he said. Calls to the nation's poison centers regarding ingestions in this age group are starting to increase.
IM: Yes, it's been reported in smaller kids, children. "Get teenagers to do their own laundry". Short of breath, having permanent damage to your cornea is severe too. "If you look at data for liquid soap ingestion, just liquid soap ingestion by itself doesn't cause too many problems", St. Vincent Health's Dr. Joe Krug told Fox 59 in Indianapolis on January 10.
IM: We definitely see it. It's not common, and we hope it stays uncommon at the ER.
Alfred Aleguas, Managing Director of the Florida Poison Information Center in Tampa said that eating Tide Pods was "pretty foolish behaviour".
