New York Seeks To End "Tide Pod Challenge"

(Albany, NY) -- A state senator is calling for a law that will force companies to better package laundry detergent pods after a trend of young people eating the toxic item.

It's expected to be talked about by lawmakers today in Albany. Senator Brad Hoylman says it's outrageous that Proctor and Gamble still hasn't made Tide pods safer. Hoylman points out on Twitter that there've been thousands of incidents with children nationally and a growing trend called the Tide pod challenge where teens intentionally put them in their mouths sometimes leading to hospitalization.
