KUSA - Consumer Reports said Thursday that poison control centers have now received almost 10,000 reports of children under 5 coming in contact with or ingesting colorful laundry pods.

The biggest culprits are the two biggest sellers in that line of laundry detergents. "Pods" from Tide and Costco's Kirdland Signature. They are top performers for cleaning but their candy-like packaging and easy access are a real concern.

Dr. Darshan Patel is one of hundreds of physicians sounding the alarm saying she's seen a lot of youngsters who have ingested the products.
