(FOX 47) -

YouTube is cracking down on a new online trend dubbed the "Tide Pod challenge". 

The video streaming site stated it will quickly remove videos of anyone participating in the challenge. 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.
