I actually saw this on TikTok the other day and was like WHAT? WHY? Well, the FDA has come out saying this is well not only gross.. but, it could be deadly! So, please tell me those in the Shreveport-Bossier area are NOT doing this “Sleepy Chicken” challenge thing.
The FDA says boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in unpredictable ways . . . and even if you don’t eat it, simply “cooking” it can wreak havoc on your lungs because you’d be inhaling the vapors.
The FDA’s report seems to be a broader warning to parents about the serious danger of social media trends, which can cause harm and even KILL people.
It’s unclear if people are actually still doing this Sleepy Chicken nonsense . . . or if it’s mostly died out
