The FDA is warning social media users against the latest wild trend: NyQuil chicken. The “NyQuil Chicken Challenge” involves covering poultry with the over-the-counter medication. Dr. Aaron Hartman said, “When you cook cough medicine like NyQuil, you boil off the water and alcohol in it, leaving the chicken saturated with a super-concentrated amount of drugs in the meat.” Even inhaling the vapors while cooking the chicken could cause harm. Overdosing on NyQuil can cause seizures, dizziness, or other serious health problems.
