More toddlers suffer eye burns from laundry packets, study says

(CNN) From 2012 to 2015, the number of chemical burns to the eye linked to laundry detergent packets rose more than 30 times among young children, a new study says. More than 1,200 3- and 4-year-olds received such burns in that time period, according to the research published Thursday in the medical journal JAMA Ophthalmology.

Single-dose detergent packs, known as laundry packets or pods, entered the mass market in 2012.
