The Challenge itself started in the middle of 2017 but then started to sky rocket in popularity by the end of 2017. Sorry it took awhile to respond.


There's no hurry, or even an obligation, to respond. Do whatever's most convenient for you.

Anyway, so we're still waiting on the data we'd need to assess whether or not Tide Pod Challenge videos have even had an impact on the rate of reported or confirmed poisoning cases. Even assuming a significant increase among the population of concern does bear out, and even assuming the Tide Pod Challenge is the underlying factor for that increase, however, I wonder how productive the proposed legislation would really be. I kind of question how productive further efforts to warn people about and protect them from the toxicity of pods would be regardless of their nature, to be honest. They're already stored in resealable bags made of thick plastic bearing labels in multiple languages warning people about their toxicity and to keep them out of reach of children. At some point the onus falls on the consumer to protect themselves whatever their motivation to eat laundry pods, don't you think?

Exactly. Unfortunately, the world has forgotten how to take this approach on a multitude of issues.
