ACI unveils document for labeling and packaging of laundry detergent packs

PKBR Staff Writer Published 14 March 2014

The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has unveiled a document for the labeling and packaging of liquid laundry detergent packets in a bid to help reduce the number of children exposed to the products.

With the release of the voluntary guidance document, ACI aims to provide guidance to firms in the labeling, packaging and designing of the products.

ACI education senior vice president Nancy Bock said the provision of guidance document is a part of the institute's ongoing efforts to help reduce accidental child exposures to the packs.

"This guidance is a priority for ACI to make sure that consumer safety information is clear, accessible and effective," Bock added.

ACI has already discussed its voluntary guidance document matter with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

In 2013, a multi-year consumer laundry safety program had been launched by ACI and a group of liquid laundry detergent packet manufacturers in an effort to educate consumers about safe storage and handling of liquid laundry packets.
