One dad experienced a very scary situation this week–he had to stop his baby from choking. While incredibly common, it’s also incredibly frightening–especially as one child dies every five days from choking in the U.S.
Justin Morrice gave his baby little crunchies snacks that his child ended up choking on. Apparently, the snacks had gone stale, which made them harder to chew. In his now viral post on Facebook (now at 26,000 shares), he wrote:
“After scanning the can my mom found this ‘warning’ in tiny letters on their side to throw contents out after 5 days of breaking the seal. I opened a new container and I could not believe the difference.
The ones in the can she choked on I can only describe to be like a foam ear plug. I could squish it but it would expand back out and would not break apart. The ones in the new can crumbled with ease.”
