Product Recall Tide Pods & Gain Flings Pods

P&G has issued a voluntary recall in collaboration with CPSC for select lot codes of bags of Tide
PODs, Gain Flings, Ace PODs and Ariel PODs distributed in the US and Canada.

Product: Certain lot codes of defective bag packaging of Tide PODs, Gain Flings, Ace PODs and Ariel
PODs distributed in the US and Canada between September 2023 – present. No other products are
affected except these specific lot codes of bag packaging.

What to Do: Bags from select lot codes sold during this period can have defective closures, which could
lead to serious injury if the product inside is able to be accessed unintentionally. Ingestion of a large
quantity of any surfactant-containing household cleaning products can cause death among individuals
with underlying health issues. If you have an issue closing bag packaging, immediately transfer the
product to a container with an effective Child Resistant Closure and store it up, closed and away, since
the product inside is unimpacted by this packaging defect. Then, reach out to P&G directly at or call us at 1-833-347-5764 and our team will be ready to assist you.

Where to find the product code: The lot code can be found on the bottom of the bag. The bar code can
be found on the back.

Questions and reimbursement: Consumers who purchased these products can contact our Consumer
Care team at 1-833-347-5764 from Monday through Friday, 9 AM ET to 6 PM ET, Saturday, 9 AM ET to
5:30 PM ET, or online at for a replacement bag package and reimbursement. We apologize
for the inconvenience.
