The Tide Pod Challenge has been a viral sensation in recent weeks, with people posting clips online of them trying to eat the detergent pods - despite warnings from Tide and health experts. Some teens are even said to be cooking these pods in frying pans and then chewing them, reported the Seattle Times.

The official stance of the O'Colly is this: Eating Tide Pods is unsafe. These chemicals make the consumer sick and induce vomiting, nausea, diarrhoea, choking, breathing difficulties and stomach pain.

Mention of eating Tide pods appeared as early as 2015, when satirical website The Onion published a column comparing them to candy.
