Doctors offer new concerns about laundry detergent pods


(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There are new concerns about those detergent pods you use in the laundry.

Doctors say they're now causing eye injuries in young children.

JAMA Ophthalmology finds the number of chemical burns to the eye from the pods have increased more than 30 times among pre-school children.

The injuries can happen from detergent squirting into eyes, or leaking onto a child's hands.

There are also concerns about children eating the pods because they look like candy.
