You have probably heard about the dangers of small laundry packets. Young children think they are candy and eat them, causing serious healthy problems. Consumer experts want to reiterate the dangers after 500 incidents involving children and adults who were injured by the product.

The CPSC is advising parents and caregivers to lock up these laundry packets and keep them away from children.
