Keep Unit Dose Away from Kids

ACI aims to reduce accidental ingestion

The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has released a voluntary guidance document for the labeling and packaging of liquid laundry detergent packets to help reduce the number of children exposed to these products, which are now used by millions of consumers.

The key goal of the document is to provide guidance on best practices for the household laundry products industry in the labeling, packaging and design of liquid laundry packets.

“These recommendations are a part of ACI’s ongoing efforts to help reduce the number of accidental child exposures to the contents of highly concentrated liquid laundry detergent packets,” said Nancy Bock, senior VP-education, ACI. “This guidance is a priority for ACI to make sure that consumer safety information is clear, accessible and effective.”

The Voluntary Guidance has already been shared with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). In 2013, ACI and a group of liquid laundry detergent packet manufacturers launched a multi-year consumer laundry safety program to educate consumers about safe storage and handling of liquid laundry packets.

In consultation with the CPSC, consumer groups, manufacturers, and retailers, ACI has broadly distributed safety alert information to consumers, poison control centers, pediatricians and other medical professionals, educators and social service providers.

ACI’s Voluntary Guidance Document can be found here.
