It must be racism! Walmart puts Tide Pods in locked cabinets

Walmart is being sued by a woman who claims racism because some Walmart stores have “beauty products” for black people, like hair dye, under lock and key.

See DCG’s post “Woman sues Walmart for “segregated” beauty products“.

The reason why stores keep certain items in locked cabinets is not because of racism, but because the items are most targeted by thieves. As an example, a CVS drug store in my neighborhood now keeps electric toothbrushes and replacement brushes in a locked cabinet.
Another reason is safety.

ABC12 WJRT reports, Jan. 31, 2018, that some Walmart stores, like those in Californian cities Modesto and Stockton, are locking up Tide Laundry Pods because more and more people have been stealing them.
Walmart spokesperson Charles Crowson gave this statement:

“No retailer is immune to the challenge of crime and Walmart is no exception. The decision about which items are subject to additional in-store security is made on data gathered at the store level and often at the discretion of the store manager.”

While Walmart would not say if the moronic Tide Pod “ForbiddenFruit” Challenge affected the decision to lock up the pods, some believe the viral trend may have had an impact.
The Tide Pod challenge is a new fad that dares people to bite into the soap pod on camera. According to the Poison Control Center, in the month of January, more than 130 teenagers have purposefully bitten into the pods compared with just 53 people last year. Dr. Mai Le with Dignity Health Medical Group in Stockton, warns that ingesting the detergent pods is very dangerous, and can lead to pulmonary edema and death.
Here’s a video on what happened to a boy who popped 3 Tide Pods into his mouth:

Poison Control says if you accidentally or intentionally ingest the pods, call their hotline number right away at 1-800-222-1222 or text POISON to 79797.

I can’t imagine how can there be and exist so many stupid people in this world they can’t see further than their noses. They are so plain and ordinary they don’t advance, they stay behind thus so easy to be manipulated and controlled, no common sense ? that’s the making of a DemoCrap.

Alma . . . . My heart grieves for the very young children who are fooled into trying these “colorful candy” substitutes. I believe that Tide is changing this so that they are not so colorful. As far as teenagers being so stupid as to pull this stunt . . . . perhaps the gene pool in our country could just as well do without their addition to is. There is NO EXCUSE for anyone 11 years of older attempting to ingest this poison. Since parent(s) must be aware of this fade . . . . why are they still… Read more »

EXACTLY Anonymous! Natural Selection at work! Huzzah! Who knew that laundry detergent would figure into the “Darwin Award” this, or any other, evolutionary year? Do you think TIDE will be surprised by receiving this coveted award?

weezy . . . . Congratulations! You have pointed out the most important aspect of this story . . . where are the parents when all this ingesting of poisonous substances is going on? If parent’s are that dis-engaged with what is going on right under their noses . . . it is absolutely “Neglect” on their part.

I’ve had quite enough of protecting stupid people.

Hadenoughalaready . . . That is a point well taken!!! Just call me old fashioned, but I would not purchase something like “Tide Pod’s.” If you asked me why that might be, I would tell you . . . my personal opinion is that there has been a whole lot of labor put into the manufacture of these Pods, combining the various liquids which have been brightly colored, but separating them from the other brightly colored agents all in a gelatinous substance, that magically melts away–releasing all the brightly colored liquids. Just give me a jug of Whisk . .… Read more »

There used to be a time when we didn’t HAVE Government agencies and Do-Gooders to protect us from our own stupidity. Back then,people evolved and developed Logic,and Common Sense,which naturally PROTECTED most of us from doing things like–THIS. As a byproduct of this,if one was overly stupid,he/she would soon do something stupid enough to remove him/herself from the “Gene Pool”,thus improving the average intelligence of Humanity. Thanks,largely,to the Liberals’ inherent “Nanny-ness” though,that no longer happens,leaving us with–THIS.

How is it that you and I escaped the “stupidity of the 1950’s and 1960’s” and are still around to tell the story? My guess is that it was only by the Grace of God.

Hard to feel sorry for Walmart, they come in, get a typical 20 YEAR moratorium on their property tax, lower their prices so they drive all the local and other stores out of business, impoverish the community and then the dummies who forsook all the other shops to go to Wallyworld are so poor that they’re forced to steal noxious smelling Tide to clean their clothes. Those Tide detergents make me want to vomit, their toxic “fragrance” is more like eau de urinal cake. You can make your own less toxic detergents, Lehman’s sells the ingredients, or you can buy… Read more »

One of the main things that have changed (besides the increase in noxious synthetic chemicals) from the “old days” is peoples diets. The whole ‘eat lots of grains and fruits and not much meat or animal fats’ USDA ploy is doing a number on peoples’ immune systems. GMO’s and glyphosate-sprayed grains like wheat and soy were not in existence in Ye Good Olde Days. Not that they didn’t have DDT or PCB’s and all that, but people ate way more ‘good’ food than nowadays. Look at any cookbooks from the 50’s and even 60’s- you’ll see recipes for tripe, ‘variety… Read more »

Excellent video. Maybe we should take the pods off the market. Or maybe start telling kids apples are forbidden instead.
Whatever the reason, we have reached a dangerous level here. Parents have to start talking to their children more and stress the dangers.

Maybe we should send a few buckets of the Pods to the DNC. They’re very attractive. Maybe they’d put them out in the candy dishes.

How is it that a “17” year old young man would participate in this kind of activity–even on a dare? Is he stupid? Is he mentally ill? Has he had not “fetching up” as my Father used to say? Looking back in history, we found that during WWII, there were young men in uniform fighting for this country, I should imagine that the same was true for WWI. If we look even farther back, say to the American Civil War, and the Revolutionary War, we had, what I can only call older children, who were out their with their lives… Read more »

“Perhaps the guidelines that cover eligibility for medical services needs to be changed to read . . . “anyone who is younger than 12 years old, will not be covered for deliberate, wanton activity that renders them subject to having poisoned themselves.” Auntie-that little tiny spot in my mind that tells me what an Attorney would say is telling me that we’d have to list by name and description every substance the law could possibly consider “poison”,or the Attorneys would be arguing,”The substance Miss Idiot ingested was NOT listed as a poisonous material,she believed that to mean it was “safe”,therefore… Read more »

It seems if you look at how things were back then versus now, childhood is pushed way beyond it’s usual term. Heck they even have coloring books for ADULTS, ha ha! Part of it is the horrible job market, in the old days, manufacturing jobs were way more plentiful and paid real money, even grocery stores and trucking paid way more than you get, and then of course think of inflation. The Rockefellers/freemasonry/satanists were responsible for this, they’ve been trying to destroy the USA since it’s inception. Once they sold us out to China thanks to Nixon and Kissinger and… Read more »

I used to wonder why they had those decals on five-gallon pails the basically said “don’t stick your head in here when its full of water or you’ll drown”. Then I thought; “well, people don’t seem to have what we used to call common sense”.
Now I think its nature’s way of culling the herd. Anyone stupid enough to do something like this should not be allowed to breed.

Mike Adams, The Health Ranger, owns a company which has equipment that can analyze the components of almost any substance. They analyzed the Tide pods. Even though Tide only admits to 14 substances on their packaging, there are over 800 toxic chemicals in a Tide pod. These evil companies have purposely formulated poisonous products to make us sick and die. Make your own laundry detergent or purchase chemical free products.

Yep. Every drop goes right into the sewer. All those phosphates and salts. As with most chemicals, the harmful effects vary greatly and are a factor of concentration and dosage. Thes “PODS” are almost technical grade. I suspect that’s their secret to success. It isn’t usually allowed to sell the public technical grade anything. By sealing it in a plastic material they are allowed to do this. How that compares to what the old-fashioned cup of powdered detergent produced is unknown, to me at least. I know from having toured a Proctor and Gamble plant once that the active ingredients… Read more »

lophatt . . . . I must admit, I wish that there were powdered dish washing soaps available. I have looked at the grocery store, but I find none available. In this day and age, we have gone high tech, and at the same time shot ourselves in the foot with all the pollutants we have on the market. I would rather have powdered soap in a box that will break down.
How many of the FOTM family remember powdered dishwashing soap in a box . . . . with a free drinking glass inside? Wow! Those were the days!

Oh I remember those, not all that long ago really. You can get the same ingredients in a little bottle of concentrate. It only takes a drop or two per load and it doesn’t have all that filler material to grind up your pump.
