The Consumer Show on RTE 1 would like to talk to parents who have had issues with children coming into contact with liquid detergent capsules. These tabs are good for cleaning clothes but are apparently dangerous to children if swallowed or rubbed in their eyes. Yet the size, colours, and textures of the tabs appear to make them attractive to our toddlers. The National Poisons Information Centre received 144 calls over this issue in 2011 and it says incidents with detergent tabs are now the most common household source of poisoning. Please email consumers@rte.ie or call The Consumer Show on 01-2084644.
