I received a forwarded text message today claiming the same thing. Needless to say I won't be using any sample packets of that stuff anytime soon.

It would be on every news station on the air right now if it were true. If it's not it's a hoax. Probably a fired employee or some idiot who needs a brain overhaul that thinks its funny.

Every thing that comes up in a search says its a hoax. Hope they find the jerk(s) who are responsible and neuter them before they breed

Well, nothing smells as foul as 'Tide'. Hopefully the anthrax will have a less offensive odor about it.

OK, multiple stories on the Internet from news sources about this. The hoax has been ongoing since 2001. The messages claim it was reported on CNN but CNN never reported any such story. Amazing it could continue to circulate all these years and people are still spreading it. Probably kids who think its funny or children in adult bodies who think its funny.

Yeah a current news link would be great. Im watching Cnn and its a re run of Anderson Cooper, so where did anyone hear that cnn is reporting an anthrax attack?

I've also googled current events and haven't seen any reportes of an attack.

So yeah, a link with evidence would be nice, instead of a random post of fb?

found it .. on .. of all places ..reddit.. here's the only news source I found so far..

usspost.com...


A rumor went around the Internets that Tide is sending samples contaminated with anthrax and people died. Well, like all the dead celebrities on Twitter, it’s just a hoax people.

So go wash your clothes and do not worry. A declaration of a Tide Rep: “I work for the Tide brand, I can confirm 100% that the text message going around is not true. From time to time people do this kind of thing as a joke; unfortunately, there is little we can do other than to share the fact that it is completely baseless.

odd that she saw it on CNN..
