Is the 'Tide Pod Challenge' a Real Thing?

Berthiaume's dish, dubbed "Pied pods", is more like a mini-calzone stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, and spices that's wrapped in crispy dough and topped with cheese dyed the same colors as the cleaning product that some kids dare to eat as part of the viral "Tide-pod challenge" on social media.

Teenagers in the United States are eating detergent and sharing videos on social media platforms.

The company released a statement saying "YouTube's Community Guidelines prohibit content that's meant to encourage risky activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm. We work to quickly remove flagged videos that violate our policies", a YouTube spokesperson told Engadget.

There's some more context here.

"We don't allow the promotion of self-injury and will remove it when we're made aware of it", a Facebook representative said in a statement.

Kids are eating Tide Pods. To try and put off other people from treating themselves to a deliciously poisonous Tide Pod, they called upon their celebrity pal Rob Gronkowski (an American footballer) to explain you shouldn't eat Tide Pods. YouTube has pulled down videos of the challenge in an effort to curb the spread.

Death of Cranberries lead singer O'Riordan not suspicious: British police
The star revealed a year ago how she had been battling depression and mental health problems and even attempted suicide in 2013. Mr Parry said he only realised O'Riordan had composed the song in memory of the event in Warrington after learning of her death.

Tide parent company Procter and Gamble also wants to stop people from eating its detergent. "DOING LAUNDRY. Nothing else".

The warning came after 39 cases of teenagers consuming the laundry pods intentionally were reported by the Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) in the first 15 days of 2018. "Laundry pacs are made to clean clothes".

The viral videos are just one of a series of scandals facing YouTube and its content creators, such as Logan Paul, which has spurred Google into action through the restriction of advertising revenue.

Patterson said they sold more than 50 of the Tide Pod donuts Wednesday, the only day they were selling them. "This is bad. Children are going to see these and associate them with Tide Pods".

In 2017, USA poison control centers received reports of more than 10,500 children younger than 5 who were exposed to the capsules.
