-- Flamin' Hot Cheetos are popular among young kids. The manufacturers of this orange-finger food product plug the goodies as "dangerously spicy." However, doctors are warning parents about the dangers of hot snacks -- especially Cheetos and similar products. Pediatricians note that these snacks are sending several children to the hospital.
Experts from Medical Daily note that eating too much spicy food can cause severe irritation of the stomach. This can ultimately result in abdominal pain.
Doctors indicate that several kids consume the spicy products and subsequently come into the emergency room with stomach complaints. According to medical professionals, kids are bound to experience peptic ulcer disease, ulcerations, erosions and more if they regularly consume Flamin' Hot Cheetos.
For example, one child reported consuming 20 or so bags of spicy snacks per month. After the boy started suffering from an upset stomach, he visited a professional, who noted that the snacks were attributing to gastritis. This condition is commonly linked to burning, bloating and vomiting.
The snacks are extremely popular, but several schools have started banning these kinds of foods due to their lack of nutritional value. Medical Daily reports that a serving of Flamin' Hot Cheetos contains 250 milligrams of sodium, over 10 grams of fat and 160 calories.
Nevertheless, the foods are very appealing to children. Parents may want to consider replacing these snacks with healthier alternatives. For example, a snack like string cheese might be easier on the stomach. Ultimately, it is important to protect loved ones from serious health issues.
Every day it seems as though products are lifted off store shelves as a result of discovered dangers or health risks. The aforementioned Cheetos product has not yet been recalled
; however, if more victims are harmed by consumption of these snacks, the Food and Drug Administration may take a closer look at the spicy treats. After all, the manufacturer is responsible for creating a food product
that is free of harmful defects or hazards.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective product, including food, you may benefit from speaking with a products liability attorney. The product manufacturer of defective food is responsible for compensating harmed individuals. However, one must actively pursue compensation; the defendant-manufacturer of the food will not simply hand over a check. Fortunately, a personal injury attorney can help you recover any experienced losses. To learn more about your case, speak with a seasoned legal professional in your area.
