BROOKLYN, N.Y. (FOX 13) - A Brooklyn pizzeria offering a safer choice to the dangerous Tide Pod challenge.
This alternative is actually edible.
Vinnie's Pizzeria in Brooklyn, New York is now offering so-called Pied Pods.
The Pied Pods are actually pizza rolls stuffed with cheese and pepperoni, topped with dyed cheese to look just like the detergent pods.
Vinnie's says it created the safe treats because they are concerned about the dangerous Tide Pod challenge trend.
The new trend involves teenagers eating poisonous tide laundry gel pods.
In 2017, poison control centers responded to over 10,000 exposures of the harmful material by kids five and younger.
