YouTube is Cracking Down On "Tide Pod Challenge" Videos

Tide pods are colourful laundry detergent capsules sold in the United States that resemble those sold in Britain by companies including Persil and Aerial Is the 'Tide Pod Challenge' a Real Thing?

In the seven-minute video, Const. Robb Hartlen reminds people that a banana and Timbit are safe to eat, but that a Tide pod or Timbit package are not.

"The "laundry packet challenge" is neither amusing nor without serious health implications", Stephen Kaminski, the association's CEO and executive director, said in a statement.

At the time of writing, the majority of videos listed for searches for the Tide Pod challenge appeared to be commentary or satirical takes on the trend, which YouTube is allowing.

YouTube and Facebook are trying to put a stop the insanely risky trend that's got people eating (and vaping!) Tide pods. Videos of teenagers spitting up, coughing or vomiting have gone viral and although YouTube is trying to remove these videos, it's impossible to hide these videos from teenagers because there are always people who repost viral videos they've downloaded.

P&G also issued a statement, noting that the pods are used safely in "millions of households everyday" and urging people not to eat them. "Nothing is more important to us than the safety of the people who use our products", a Tide spokesperson told Buzzfeed News.

"Our laundry pacs are a highly concentrated detergent meant to clean clothes", Tide said in a statement.

The Onion followed up with an entitled "So Help Me God, I'm Going To Eat One Of Those Multicolored Detergent Pods" that satirically mocked the trend a year later.

YouTube has said it is deleting any videos showing the Tide Pod challenge in an effort to stem the unsafe detergent-eating craze among U.S. teens. "They should not be played with, whatever the circumstance is, even if meant as a joke".

Patterson said they sold more than 50 of the Tide Pod donuts Wednesday, the only day they were selling them.

Responding to nationwide headlines about the Tide Pod Challenge, the company released a PSA video (above) featuring New England Patriots player, Rob Gronkowski.

At the peak of the Tide Pod Challenge's virality, a GIF of Oprah Winfrey eating on stage was tweeted out and became a meme joking that she epitomised the feeling of eating a detergent pack. And although that may be necessary, the fact that the growing problem is with teens and young adults is hard to adjust to, seeing as they know better than to eat laundry detergent (or so we thought).

"They're made to melt when they hit water, so when you ingest them in your mouth, they start melting and the chemicals are very serious", Smith said.
