Baby Ingests Detergent Packet, Later Dies

A Florida boy died on Friday, August 16, and laundry detergent pods could be at fault.

What happened?

Kissimmee, Florida's Local 6 news station reported that a one-year-old boy died Friday after accidentally ingesting a Tide laundry detergent packet. Kissimmee police say the boy and his mother were at a shelter for battered women on Friday when the incident occurred. While the police believe the laundry detergent packet likely led to the boy's death, official ruling as to the cause of death may not be made for up to 12 weeks, the medical examiner told Local 6.

Hidden household dangers

Dr. Cynthia Younger of the Florida Poison Center told the station, "Probably these are not the best products to be in the homes of young children. There are certainly other forms of laundry detergent available. But if they're going to be purchased, they need to be locked up, in a very high place so the children can't get them."

This isn't the first time...

This incident is by far the first. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, last year poison centers received reports of 6,231 children ages 5 and younger being exposed to the highly concentrated packets of laundry detergent. And from Jan. 1 to July 31 of this year alone, 5,753 young kids have been exposed.

Last month, Tide announced it will change the clear packaging of its pods to opaque in an effort to deter children from mistaking them for candy. Sadly, the problem was not fixed in time to save this Florida boy.

Don't let this happen to your baby

This is a good reminder for all parents of babies and young children who tend to explore new things by putting them in their mouths or who may mistake an inedible item for food or candy. Double check items in your household to ensure all cleaning products are safely in cabinets high out of reach or locked with childproof latches.

Simply just collect a collection of magnetrons toned away from client microwave ovens, as well as fasten their output in concert so they really combine within 1 clear ray. What's more, they are saying, the trick can be achieved robotically.

Stove magnetrons come with a pipe processed factor manages a productivity indication. The reasoning is to plan a dozen possibly even side-by-side where you can modest precious metal area in front which echos some of the energy from just about every tube into the lip area involving next models. This ought to try to make each of the magnetrons speak out loud with synchronisation, the people think. 300 buyer products, with a rating of 1 kw every single, may combine to obtain megawatt impulses from your rear of an mobile power generators.

In the event you direct the item at the laptop, a new kilowatt could get the job done. It would avoid consumers actually pressing a great contra - aircraft gun, plus it must also prevent people from reacting properly, but in no way could it be along with their own other systems.

Just gather together twenty pieces magnetrons washboard out of customer microwave ovens, and lock their particular result together with each other to make sure they merge straight into just one consistent order. Additionally, people say, the key can be achieved robotically.

Microwave oven magnetrons come with a tube designed ingredient that controls the outcome sign. The objective is to prepare 12 perhaps hand and hand and have a compact metallic area right in front that will demonstrates a lot of the energy out of each one conduit back into the mouth associated with nearby kinds. This will help to make every one of the magnetrons speak out loud during synchronisation, the inventors consider. More than 200 purchaser systems, with a rating of 1 kw every, might put together to generate megawatt impulses with the rear of the mobile or portable power generator.

A common challenge explains why the united states government Patent Place of work provides released a loan application that may tell everyone, like terrorists, how to develop a really gun.
