ADN America

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning social media users against the challenge that involves cooking chicken with NyQuil.

As part of the viral trend “NyQuil Chicken Challenge,” social media users are covering their chicken with the over-the-counter liquid medication that is used to treat the flu, colds, and allergies.

The FDA explained in a statement that the challenge could have potentially deadly outcomes, not only from eating the meal but from the cooking process itself.

“Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways,” the FDA explained in a warning. If the medication’s vapors are inhaled while cooking, a large quantity of drugs can enter an individual’s body, the agency added.
