Procter & Gamble has recalled 8.2 million defective bags of Tide Pods, Gain Flings, Ace Pods and Ariel Pods liquid laundry detergent distributed in the US.

The company said that the outer packaging meant to prevent access to the contents can split open near the zipper track and may seriously injure children and vulnerable populations if ingested. The substance may also pose a risk of skin or eye injuries.

The company warned that ingestion of surfactant-containing household cleaning products in large amounts can cause death.

Customers who have availed the said items are eligible for a full refund and a free replacement of child resistant bags to store the product. They can also receive a cabinet lock to secure laundry materials.

The products were sold at Big Lots, CVS, Family Dollar, Home Depot, Sam’s Club, Target, Walmart, and other major stores nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.com and other websites starting September last year.
