Parents, beware: the spicy snacks in your pantry may be dangerous to your kids—and not because they lack nutritional value. Emergency room doctors have seen an increase in patients needing treatment for kids who have developed gastritis—a painful inflammation or erosion of the stomach lining—after eating Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheetos.
Experts say the snacks change the pH balance in the stomach, making it painfully acidic. It’s not the flamin’ hot spices it’s the flavor coating that’s causing the problem!
School districts across the country have banned the sale of the Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheetos on school grounds. Frito Lay commented on the situation, “ we are committed to responsible and ethical practices, which includes not marketing our products to children ages 12 and under.”
I guess Chester the Cheetah targets adults, right?
