Dangerous Tide Pod Challenge: 8 things you need to know

In a a statement, YouTube said its community guidelines prohibit content that encourages unsafe activities that have a risk of causing physical harm.

Maria Burnham, coordinator of health services for the St. Joseph School District, said none of the nurses in the school district have reported any cases of Tide Pod poisoning.

Sarringar said the reaction to the doughnut so far has been generally positive, with most people understanding that the store is attempting to poke fun at the Internet challenge.

'We work quickly to remove flagged videos that violate our policies'.

YouTube is trying to get ahead of the matter by pulling Tide Pod challenge videos from its platform.

Canadian authorities are warning people to stop eating laundry detergent pods, a odd and unsafe online trend that has resulted in more than 40 hospitalizations in North America.

"We want to remind people these are highly concentrated detergents meant to clean clothes".

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

Even if it's being done as a joke and the person never intends to swallow the detergent, biting into the pod will likely make it squirt down their gullet. The Tide-Pod Challenge, which is exactly what it sounds like, is making its way across the internet as half-ironic users pretend or try to consume the toxic detergent.

Even Rob Gronkowski - the ultimate party bro - filmed a PSA for Tide advising people not to eat the pods. We hope everyone takes this seriously: "laundry pacs must only be used for their intended objective". "If you're concerned that your child or their friends could potentially participate in something this risky, it may be wise to use another form of laundry detergent". Tide had to hastily shoot and upload a video where The Gronk of the New England Patriots tells the world not to eat the pods.

"We have seen a large spike in single-load laundry packet exposures among teenagers since these videos have been uploaded", Stephen Kaminski, the AAPCC's CEO, said in a statement.

'There is a reason why laundry manufacturers advise that pods are kept out of reach of children and that is because they can cause serious harm if misused, ' Weir said.
