Apparently Eating Laundry Detergent Pods Is The Latest 'Young People' Trend

Doctors and parents are trying to raise awareness around the unsafe nature of this new Internet craze.What are Tide Pods and how risky are they? In extreme cases, the pods can be "life-threatening".

Photos and video clips tagged with "Tide Pod Challenge" show teens chewing the packets and then spitting the liquid detergent out of their mouths.

Where did the Tide Pod Challenge come from?

In some videos, teens are putting the pods in frying pans and cooking them before consuming them.

The earliest instance we found of the "Tide pod challenge" as a concept involving eating the detergent pods was in September 2012, and we found a YouTube video dating to June 2014 which showed a prankster biting into one.

The latest trend, though, goes well beyond that, as teenagers know full well what they are eating.

The figure rose to more than 12,000 in 2015 - the highest in the last five years - according to a graph posted by AAPCC.

As you can see, they look pretty tasty-kinda like fruit-flavored candies, right?

The idea of eating them has been around for years.

Some commented they looked like giant Gusher gummies, but, you know, instead of a sugary sweet filling they contain toxic soap.

The video, just one of hundreds, is both foolish and disgusting - in addition to risky - and doctors are urging people to refrain from attempting the challenge. "Ending up in the emergency room is no joke", he said, USA Today reported.

A spokesperson for Tide says their trendy packets are only meant for cleaning, um, laundry.
