What is Procter & Gamble Recall About?

Procter & Gamble, a major detergent manufacturer known for popular brands such as Tide and Gain, has announced a voluntary recall of some of their most popular product lines including Tide Pods, Gain Pods, Ariel Pods, and Ace Laundry Pods. The consumer is wide reaching as it includes 8.2 million bags of tide pods. The recall is due to a manufacturing issue where some of P&G's laundry detergent pod packages were not sealed correctly, potentially causing them to split open near the zipper track.

This defect poses a potential risk of serious injury to children and vulnerable individuals like the elderly or those with cognitive impairments. The highly concentrated detergent can lead to excessive vomiting, wheezing, gasping, respiratory distress requiring ventilation, and even death, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (The CPSC).

How Do I Qualify and How Much Can I Get Paid?

To qualify for this recall, you must have purchased any of the affected products: Tide Pods, Gain Flings, Ace Pods, and Ariel Pods liquid laundry detergent packets. The pods were sold in flexible film bags and manufactured between September 2023 and February 2024. The recall includes about 8.2 million units sold in the U.S. and an additional 56,741 units sold in Canada. The full list of recalled detergent products is as follows:

Gain Flings Original Tide Simply Pods Plus Oxi Boost
Gain Flings Moonlight Breeze Scent Tide Pods Clean Breeze Scent
Gain Flings Blissful Breeze Scent Tide Pods Free & Gentle
Gain Flings Spring Daydream Scent Tide Pods Oxi
Gain Flings Plus Ultra Oxi Tide Pods Ultra Oxi
Gain Flings Plus Odor Defense Ace Pods Clean Breeze
Tide Pods Original Ace Pods Spring Meadow
Tide Pods Spring Meadow Scent Ariel Pods Alpine Breeze
Tide Pods Light

If you bought these products from retailers such as Big Lots, CVS, Family Dollar, Home Depot, Sam's Club, Target, Walmart, or online on Amazon.com from September 2023 to the present, you may qualify for a reimbursement or refund from the recall. The prices ranged from $5 (for one 12 ct. bag) to $30 (for four 39 ct. bags in a box).

P&G offers to replace the damaged detergent pod product or a prepaid debit card for the value of your purchase price, as well as a replacement bag with a specialized latch to keep your laundry products secure.

How do I file a claim?

You can submit a form online on the company's official website. You may be required to provide proof of purchase such as a photo or scan of the product barcode along with the product's lot code (which should be on the side or bottom of the bag) to confirm that your product is part of the national P&G recall.
