Laundry Packets - A Hazardous Product For Children

Laundry Packets - A Hazardous Product For Children

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC") has taken the time to advise yet again of the hazards associated with individual, liquid laundry packets. Tragically, children exposed to these various chemicals contained in these dangerous products - particularly those within the smaller, single load packs, are at risk of serious injury as the chemicals contained in these various packets are toxic. CPSC is warning parents and caregivers to keep these laundry packets in safe places - and out of the reach of children, who find these individual packets attractive as play toys.

Often times, these laundry packs present as attractive, colorful items items which can look very much to a child like a play toy or candy item and/or possibly a teething product. Statistically, Consumer Product Safety Commission staff, in 2012 alone, learned of approximately five-hundred such incidents in the field whereby children (and even some adults) were injured by these various products. Various of these injured children required hospitalization from ingesting these toxins.
