Over 8 million packages of laundry detergent are being recalled and that could have a massive impact in New York.

Procter & Gamble who make Tide Pods along with other detergents has issued a recall for 8.2 million packets of Tide Pods due to faulty packaging that could lead to accidental ingestion or facial burns for children.


The recall was first reported by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and impacted several brands of detergent.

The recall involves Tide, Gain Flings, Ace, and Ariel liquid laundry detergent pod packets. These pods were manufactured between September 2023 and February 2024 and sold in flexible film bags.

The recall centers around the outer packaging, which was designed to prevent access to the pods. The packaging of the recalled pods could split open near the zipper track, posing a risk of serious injury to children and other vulnerable populations if the contents of the laundry detergent pods are ingested, as well as posing a risk of skin or eye injuries.

The products that are part of the recall were sold at several retailers including Big Lots, CVS, Family Dollar, Home Depot, Sam’s Club, Target, Walmart, and online from Amazon.

The pods were priced between $5 for one 12-count bag and $30 for four 39-count bags that were packaged in a box.
