FDA: Cough medicine boiled chicken unsafe.
Some recent TikTok short videos have launched a “sleepy chicken” challenge, asking people to cook chicken with cough syrup or other over-the-counter cough and cold medicines.
The FDA notes that boiled drugs become more concentrated and their properties change.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reminding netizens not to use cough syrup to cook chicken, saying it is not only stupid and delicious, but also very unsafe.
In a Sept. 15 notice, the FDA noted that some recent TikTok videos launched a “sleepy chicken” challenge asking people to cook chicken with the cough syrup NyQuil or other similar over-the-counter cough and cold medicines. .
The FDA notes that boiled drugs become more concentrated and their properties change, “even if you don’t eat chicken, inhaling drug vapors while cooking can cause a lot of the drug to enter your body. It can also damage your lungs.”
This isn’t the first time the FDA has warned against social media challenges with over-the-counter drug use.
In September 2020, the FDA issued a similar warning when multiple teens were admitted to emergency rooms or died after participating in the “Benadryl challenge” launched on TikTok. Benadryl is an antihistamine, mainly used to treat allergies.
