Wright & Schulte LLC Represents Families of 13 Children Who Were Allegedly Injured by Liquid Laundry Pods
Wright & Schulte LLC, which recently filed a Tide laundry pod lawsuit on behalf of 13 children who were allegedly injured following exposure to laundry pod gel, commends Consumer Reports’ decision to remove liquid laundry detergent pods from its list of recommended products. In doing so, Consumer Reports’ cited data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers showing that during the first half of 2015, poison-control centers around the country logged 6,046 reports involving children age 5 and younger ingesting or inhaling pods, or getting pod contents on their skin or in their eyes.
“We commend Consumer Reports for taking this stand, and are hopeful that this decision will help raise the publics’ awareness about the dangers potentially associated with liquid laundry pods,” says Wright & Schulte LLC, a nationwide law firm that represents those injured by dangerous consumer products.
Liquid detergent laundry pods have been on the market since 2012, and quickly became popular because of their ease and convenience. Most of the injuries reported to poison control centers involved cases where a child had bitten or poked a hole into the pod, allowing the highly-concentrated gel detergent to get into their eyes or go down their throats. Ingesting the detergent can result in vomiting and coughing, and in the most serious cases, comas, seizures and breathing problems.
Wright & Schulte LLC has filed suit against laundry detergent pod manufacturers on behalf of 13 infants and toddlers from Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, North Carolina and Texas who were injured after being exposed to Tide Pods laundry packets. The children, who range in age from 20 months to 5 years old, either swallowed, inhaled or were exposed to the gel within the pods. (Case No. A14068580, Court of Common Pleas in Hamilton County, Ohio)
The Firm is also representing the family of an elderly man who died after being exposed to Tide Pods laundry detergent. According to the Tide Pods lawsuit, the decedent suffered from diminished mental capacity, and suffered serious personal injuries resulting in his death after swallowing, inhaling or being otherwise exposed to the contents of the Tide Pods packets. (Case No. A 1500868, Hamilton County (Ohio) Court of Common Pleas)
