Health roundup: CDC warns of laundry pod dangers”

“Detergent danger: Parents and other caregivers should keep concentrated pods of laundry detergent out of the reach and sight of children, says a new warning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC joined poison centers to analyze 1,000 reported cases in which children were exposed to any kind of laundry detergent and found those who got their hands (and often their mouths) on the concentrated packets were more likely to vomit, choke, cough and become lethargic than those exposed to other kinds of detergent. The cases were first reported in the spring but experts still don’t know why the detergent packets make kids so sick.”
