The theme of National Poison Prevention Week’s first day is “Children Act Fast…So Do Poison,” says the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC). Since children under 5 are naturally curious, they can quickly grab a dangerous product like a liquid gel detergent pod which they mistake for candy or a toy. The annual event runs from March 20 to March 24. The AAPCC says the week is dedicated to highlighting problems with poisoning in the United States and specific ways to prevent it. http://www.aapcc.org/prevention/nppw/

Laundry detergent manufacturers have come under fire by politicians, consumer advocates and parents who want changes made to the laundry products. In February 2015, the Detergent Poisoning and Child Safety Act was simultaneously introduced in the U.S. House and Senate. The bills calls for laundry detergent manufacturers to change the design and color of the pods to make them less attractive to children. The proposed legislation, which is still pending, also seek changes to the high concentration of the liquid detergent to make the consequences of exposure less severe.
