Wow! I just read about this and wanted to share with you guys! According to New York Times, Tide Laundry Detergent could expose you to the cancer causing chemical “Dioxane.” The test conducted showed Problematic levels of 1,4 dioxane in Tide Free & Gentle (fragrance free) and Tide Original Scent. Smaller amounts were found in their Bounce Free & Sensitive dryer sheets. You can read the entire article at New York Times site.
Procter & Gamble Authorities are claiming that the levels are “Dioxane” are below the cancer causing risk factor. I will be interested to see how this story unfolds. I know this is VERY ALARMING to me! I will not be using these products until further tests are conducted or Tide agrees to remove Dioxane from it’s ingredients!
Let us know about your thoughts on this?! Will you still be buying and using Tide Detergent?!
