Al-Marsad newspaper: The US Food and Drug Administration has warned against the “NyQuil Chicken Challenge”, in which poultry is cooked with the cough medicine NyQuil.
In the details, users on the communication sites cook chicken with an over-the-counter drug, which is used to treat symptoms of influenza, colds and allergies.
And the FDA warned that this matter may have very dangerous consequences, not only if it is ingested, but also from the cooking process, according to the newspaper, “The New York Post”, on Tuesday.
She also explained that “boiling the drug can make it more concentrated and change its properties in other ways,” adding that even inhaling drug vapors during cooking can cause high levels of the drug to enter the body, and also harm the lungs.
She also added that someone could simply take a dangerously large amount of cough and cold medicine without even realizing it.
