P&G to Make Laundry Pods Packaging Look Less Like Candy

The Wall Street Journal reports Procter & Gamble Co. announced that is making packaging changes on its Tide Pods laundry-detergent pouches, as reports of young children ingesting the single-load liquid packets of concentrated detergent accidentally continue to rise. The Cincinnati-based, consumer-goods manufacturer said its Tide Pods would now be packaged in opaque bags and buckets, and the transparent containers, which resembled candy bowls, would be eliminated. The move is part of P&G’s Safe Home program, Phase II, which the company launched yesterday to educate consumers on how to use and store household cleaning products safely. The Journal notes that from January through June of this year, the American Association of Poison Control Centers received reports on approximately 4,868 children, age 5 and younger, who were exposed to small single-load laundry pods.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
