Safety Update

In light of the recent internet “Tide PODS challenge”, the University would like to emphasize that laundry pacs are not made to be eaten. All detergent can be toxic; ingesting even a small amount can lead to serious health implications. If detergent makes its way into the bloodstream and organs, the effects could be fatal.

For your safety and the safety of others, we urge you to not participate or condone this activity.

If you or someone you know ingests Tide PODS, call 911 and then call York University’s Security Services at 416-736-5333, or from your office phone at extension 33333.
