Tide Pods Packaging Will Change

Posted: Updated:

Tide is changing the packaging for its pods detergent pouches after more reports of young children ingesting them.

The small plastic tubs and bags will now be opaque, not clear.

Clear packages are still on store shelves but they are being phased out.

There have been multiple complaints from parents, concerned by the fact that the pods come in bright colors making them look like candy.

Nationwide, nearly 5,000 small children have been exposed to the potentially dangerous poisonous packets.

Symptoms range from severe vomiting to respiratory illness.
