Tide Pods and other Pod-Detergent Products may Lead to Safety Risks

Shub & Johns launches investigation into the Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) after P&G issued a recall on some pod-based detergent products, such as Tide Pods and Gain Flings.

Products manufactured between September 2023 and February 2024 were contained in a potentially defective product packaging. This bag-like packaging uses a zipper track to seal the outer packaging, and is meant to prevent easy access to the detergent pod products that may pose health risks to children and other vulnerable parties. The zipper track, however, may split open, allowing access to the contents or even latching onto the  pod-product itself and causing a leak.

Ingestion of these detergent pod products can pose a serious health risk for any individual, especially children. The alleged zipper track defect may allow easier than intended access to children or pets, potentially leading to death or other serious health effects. The detergent product can also cause serious harm to one’s skin and eyes.

The following Procter & Gamble products packaged in a zipper track packaging, manufactured between September 2023 and February 2024, may be equipped with this defect:

  • Tide Pods
  • Gain Flings
  • Ace Pods
  • Ariel Pods
