Children Are Mistaking Laundry Detergent for Candy
Because negligent manufacturers package their laundry detergent in a way that is very similar to candy, children are drawn to them and think nothing of eating them. When a company creates a product of any kind, it has a responsibility to the public to ensure it is safe and produced in a way that will not harm the public.
By creating a product that looks very similar to candy, yet can kill children, laundry detergent pod manufacturers are acting negligently and need to be held accountable. If your child has mistaken a laundry detergent package as candy and become injured, we can help. You can rely on our more than 30 years of personal injury experience to guide you down the right path.
What Do I Do if My Child Eats a Detergent Pod?
The very first thing you should do is to call 911 and seek medical assistance immediately. These pods are extremely dangerous to children and can lead to death. The chemicals inside can lead to the burning of the esophagus, stomach and other organs.
Once your child has received the proper medical care, contact our law firm to learn how you can stop incidents like this from happening to other families in the future.
