Tide Pods and Gain Flings Laundry Detergent Packets Recall

April 5, 2024


Procter & Gamble is recalling certain lot codes of Tide Pods, Gain Flings, Ace Pods and Ariel Pods liquid laundry detergent packets packaged in flexible film bags. This recall announcement applies only to bags distributed in the United States.  These packages were manufactured between September 2023 and February 2024. Recalled products range from bags with 12 to 39 laundry detergent packets.

The outer packaging meant to prevent access to the contents can split open near the zipper track, posing a risk of serious injury to children and other vulnerable populations if the contents of the laundry detergent packets are ingested, as well as posing a risk of skin or eye injuries. Ingestion of a large quantity of any surfactant-containing household cleaning products can cause death among individuals with underlying health issues.

Upon returning the product to your local Big Y or with the proof of purchase (if the product was discarded), you will receive a full refund.

The following products are sold at Big Y:
