Reuters reports that according to statistics from the National Poison Data System, U. S. poison control centers received 17,230 calls regarding children younger than six who were exposed to the pods between 2012 and 2013. Dr. Gary Smith of Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio said kids may think the colored pods are candy or full of juice.

One child died over the two-year period.
