The American Association of Poison Control Centers has issued a warning about children eating single dose packs of laundry detergent. The AAPCC says some young children and toddlers who swallow these small packets have become very ill and have required hospitalization. Other children have gotten the product in their eyes, resulting in significant eye irritation. Here are some highlights of the incidents:


  • Ten minutes after a 20-month-old swallowed a laundry detergent packet, the child developed profuse vomiting, wheezing and gasping and then became unresponsive to even painful stimuli.
  • A 15-month-old who bit into a pack and swallowed a mouthful had profuse vomiting and, after arrival at a hospital, had to be put on a ventilator for airway protection.
  • A 17-month-old bit into a packet and then rapidly developed drowsiness, vomited, breathed the product into the lungs, and had to be put on a ventilator.

Dr. Michael Beuhler, medical director of the Carolinas Poison Center, says, “The rapid onset of significant symptoms is pretty scary. Other laundry detergents cause only mild stomach upset or even no symptoms at all. Although we aren’t certain what in the product is making the children sick, we urge all
parents and caregivers to make sure laundry detergent packs are not accessible to young kids.”



Dr. Richard Besser discusses the danger posed by colorful detergent packets for ABC News. Some of these colorful detergent packs resemble candy, which explains why toddlers are eating them. Take a look:

Often the key to finding great bargains is timing. As they say “timing is everything”, or is that “location is everything”? In either case, there are some great bargains to be had in the month of May and here are 10 of the best.

Mattresses

New mattresses typically arrive in stores in May. It is no surprise this is when you’ll find a good deal on the previous year’s models. Let’s be honest, there are not a lot of amazing technological break-through in mattresses from one year to the next, so why pay more for the newest model when last years will do just fine.

Party & Picnic Supplies

The best time to stock up for summer get-togethers and 4th of July parties is right now. Don’t wait until the week before as you will end up paying significantly more.

Refrigerators

Snowblowers

This one is fairly obvious, big box stores do not want to store their snow blowers until next year so they will slash prices to get rid of the ones they still have. Buy now and store in your garage until next winter. Your wallet will thank you. If you have never seen a snow flake in your neck of the woods, then move on to the next product. :-)
