Procter & Gamble (P&G), recalled 8.2 million defective bags of Tide

Today, Tide Pods, Gain Flings, Ace Pods, and Ariel Pods liquid laundry detergent packets packaged in flexible film bags were the subject of a voluntary packaging recall by Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG). Only bags distributed in the US are included by this recall notice.

According to P&G, there have been three reports of kids swallowing laundry packet contents, but there have been no verified instances or injuries linked to the packaging flaw.

Children could be exposed to chemicals in these detergent pods if the outside wrapping of the bags splits open close to the zipper track.

Laundry pod chemicals have the potential to cause burns, severe breathing difficulties, convulsions, and comas.

About 56,741 devices that were sold in Canada are also included in the recall.
