A Texas dad is putting his own spin on the viral Tide Pod Challenge with a Facebook video challenging teens to do something more productive with the laundry pods. But the American Association of Poison Control Centers warns that the challenge could have serious health consequences.

In the first two weeks of 2018, USA poison control centers handled 39 cases of teenagers intentionally eating Tide Pods, according to the AAPCC. Poison control centres said that they handled 39 cases of intentional misuse among 13 to 19 year olds in the first 15 days of the year, compared to about 50 for all of last year.

"We cannot stress enough how unsafe this is to the health of individuals-it can lead to seizure, pulmonary edema, respiratory arrest, coma, and even death", Stephen Kaminski, CEO and Executive Director at AAPCC, said in a statement.

YouTube and Facebook also announced earlier this month that they would remove videos of people eating Tide Pods in an effort to deter others.

"I know what you're thinking, the Tide Pod Challenge couldn't possibly be political, could it?" she added.

"After today it's just going to be special orders, but we will make them for you if you also want to teach your kids lessons about, you know, what to eat and what not to eat", the manager said.

Wake N Bake Donuts in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, and Kansas-based Hurts Donut have both made pastries decorated to look like the laundry detergent pods, which are at the centre of a risky social media trend.

Ramos said it comes as no surprise that people crave attention and, for younger people who have grown up in a culture of "likes" on social media, it can contribute to people trying to do stunts to gain some level of recognition. Under liberalism, apparently, nobody tells kids what to do, so they're eating Tide Pods. Some think the businesses are being irresponsible because the real detergent is unsafe to consume, while others think the pastries are amusing.
