Parents should be aware of the latest social media trend that has kids/teens putting detergent pods in their mouth.

Yes, what you wash clothes with is being put in kid's mouths. The pods have been responsible for the deaths of ten people since they emerged.

The manufacturers of these pods say that they should NEVER be put in your mouth or consumed. The detergent inside the pods is dangerous, thus it should not be consumed!

Some "challenges" online can be fun, but this latest trend is flat out dangerous. Parents need to be aware of this and always keep detergent out of reach of kids.

We hope you'd share this with your friends on social media so that other's are aware of this dangerous trend.
