Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., wants the Consumer Product Safety Commission to crack down on laundry detergent "pods" that look so much like candy, he can barely stop himself from eating one:

“These pods were supposed to make household chores easier, not tempt our children to swallow harmful chemicals," Schumer said. "I saw one on my staffer's desk and I wanted to eat it.”
