The Food & Drug Administration issued a warning about cooking chicken marinated in NyQuil.

The FDA says boiling or frying chicken marinated in Nyquil can be dangerous because heat increases the concentration of NyQuil's active ingredients.

NyQuil chicken became a thing in February after a man shared his unusual NyQuil chicken recipe in a YouTube video.

The FDA issued a warning this week after children tested the recipe on TikTok and issued a challenge to other kids.

"The challenge sounds silly and unappetizing — and it is. But it could also be very unsafe," the FDA said. "Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways. Even if you don't eat the chicken, inhaling the medication's vapors while cooking could cause high levels of the drugs to enter your body."

NyQuil is a cold and flu medication that contains an antihistamine. DayQuil is the non-drowsy formula.

Parents are advised to keep prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication out of the reach of children. Parents should monitor their child's TikTok account for dangerous content.

A TikTok user is going viral after demonstrating the correct way to eat chicken wing "flats".

The TikTok user said her way of eating a chicken wing is "life changing."

First you bite off each end of the wing. Then you twist and pull out the smallest bone. Now you scoff down the whole chicken wing while simultaneously pulling the larger bone out.

If you're not eating chicken wings this way, you've been doing it wrong your entire life. And you're missing out on one of the great pleasures in life.
 


 
This next viral video of an infant eating a whole chicken wing is dangerous. Babies that age should never eat whole chicken wings because they can choke.

Rumors are spreading that NeNe Leakes is having trouble keeping chefs/cooks at The Linnethia Lounge.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member put out a call for chefs/cooks to basically work for free at The Linnethia Lounge in Duluth, Ga for a few weeks.

In a post on Instagram, she wrote:

"The Linnethia Lounge is looking for the best cooks/chefs in the Atlanta area to take over our kitchen for 1 week. Every week there will be a different cook/chef for next few weeks! Our lounge guest will be the judge! The WINNER will have the kitchen permanently in January to start their very own restaurant in The Linnethia Lounge."

Trolls on IG suggested NeNe wants cooks to work for free until after the holidays.

NeNe has denied reports that she is low on cash after the death of her husband, Gregg Leakes, in September.

The 53-year-old mom-of-two listed the couple's marital home for $4 million and slashed the list price twice to $3.4 million after receiving no offers.

Witherite Law Group, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and V-103 doubled outreach efforts to feed 2000 families for Thanksgiving!

Pictured (L to R) Christina "Ms. Basketball" Granville (V-103's Big Tigger Morning Show), Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant (New Birth Missionary Baptist Church); Big Tigger (V-103's Big Tigger Morning Show), Amy Witherite (Witherite Law Group) and Tylerchronicles (V-103's Big Tigger Morning Show) provided 2,000 families with turkeys, hams, food and inspiration ahead of the holiday season.

The Witherite Law Group's annual holiday event took place on Wednesday, November 17. The effort was only slated to give away 1000 turkeys, but when cars started lining up as early as 2 a.m., and had reached near capacity by 6 a.m., it prompted Bryant and Witherite Law Group to double the support by adding another 1000 meals.

"We have too many people still in need, and I think this is a great indication that we need to do more," said Amy Witherite, founder of Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck. "The aftereffects and the current effects of the pandemic are not over. It's important for us to do our part to help people and make their lives a little bit better."

With a nationwide turkey shortage and rising food prices, families were grateful for the opportunity to receive a turkey and other staple items to make a meal for their families this Thanksgiving. What started as an effort to provide 1,000 families with free Thanksgiving meal boxes and turkeys quickly grew as cars poured into the New Birth parking lot early Wednesday morning, prompting Witherite and Bryant to double down on the planned outreach effort to expand the donations to an additional 1,000 families.

"Amy and the Witherite Law Group team continue to be exceptional partners with V-103 in serving the community beyond just business objectives, but truly making the investment in time and resources to positively make an impact in the Atlanta area,” said Rick Caffey, senior vice president and market manager of Audacy Atlanta.

Since the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the economic hardships that resulted, the demand for food assistance has been even greater. People have been known to drive in from as far as an hour away to have a meal on the table for their families. New Birth's food pantry, known as The King's Table, has provided free food to more than 837,000 people to date, including $3 million in food, supplies, essential medical supplies, and household items.

"The bleak reality is that the COVID-19 pandemic not only marks a global health crisis but also a financial one that has increased food insecurities across the nation and around the world," said Dr. Bryant.

"What we experienced demonstrated that the need is not a hypothetical one, but a sobering reality that food insecurities are right here in our community and must be addressed, even post-pandemic."

The Thanksgiving boxes, which were provided on a first-come, first-served basis, were filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, shelf-stable food items, and other essential items for families financially impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Marcus, in collaboration with Bon Appétit, hired and then challenged 10 aspiring NY chefs to create a "sustainable, plant-based menu" with all the bells and whistles - hence all the fruits and veggies.

However, Keke's pic, which consisted of the entree, had everyone talking about how unappetizing the food looked.

One person wrote, "This was clearly a 'eat before you get there' type of thing."

Another person wrote, "They feeding y'all like it's Fyre Festival."

In addition to a fresh salad, Keke dined on appetizers, including 6 hor d'oeuvres, a watermelon pumpkin salad, Spanish-style tomato toast rubbed with garlic and anchovy oil, followed by collard greens served on coconut buttermilk cornbread, black rice porcini arancini and smoked yuzu soy on a single panipuri cracker.

Dessert included an apple topped with chocolate mousse and apple confit with a calvados eau-de-vie glaze.

A second lab analysis of Subway restaurant's tuna fish sandwich, obtained by The NY Times, failed to identify any fish DNA in the ingredients.

Months after two Bay Area residents claimed there was no fish in Subway's tuna fish sandwiches, the New York Times ordered a new lab analysis.

A federal class action lawsuit noted a laboratory analysis of the tuna fish sandwiches determined no seafood DNA was found in the ingredients.

"We found that the ingredients were not tuna and not fish," said one of two attorneys representing two plaintiffs in the lawsuit in an email to The Washington Post.

The lawsuit claimed the "products are made from a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by Defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna."

Subway restaurant hit back at the claims that the company made "false and misleading representations about tuna being used as an ingredient."

"There simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California," a company spokesperson told DailyMail.com in January.

However, a second analysis of more than five feet of Subway tuna fish sandwiches obtained by the New York Times, determined no fish DNA was found in the samples.

Ikea store's Juneteenth menu featuring fried chicken and watermelon angered employees at an Atlanta area store.

The store's Juneteenth menu was created in honor of the first official Juneteenth federal holiday on the weekend of June 19.

The Juneteenth menu contained fried chicken, watermelon, macaroni and cheese and collard greens -- all southern food staples.

The soul food was to be served to all employees on Saturday to "honor and persevere Black Americans" on Juneteenth, the store stated in an email sent to employees, according to WGCL CBS46 in Atlanta.

However, Black employees expressed outrage after discovering the menu was created by execs at Ikea's corporate office.

"You cannot say serving watermelon on Juneteenth is a soul food menu when you don't even know the history, they used to feed slaves watermelon during the slave time," one employee told CBS46.

Following the backlash, Ikea released a statement, saying "the meal was intended to be served to co-workers as an internal celebration, not customers."

Some employees told CBS46 that no Black employees were involved with creating the menu, But Ikea stated that there were a few Black people on the menu selection committee.

Subway's public relations team rushed to get ahead of a potential PR disaster from a lawsuit claim that the franchise serves mystery meat to its customers.

A lawsuit filed by two plaintiffs in California claims an independent laboratory tested a Subway tuna fish sandwich and found the sandwich did not contain tuna or even fish.

"The products are made from a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by Defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna," the lawsuit alleged. "Defendants identified, labeled and advertised the products as 'tuna' to consumers, when in fact they were not tuna."

The news prompted rampant speculation that Subway cuts corners by serving dog, cat or even human flesh that are cheaper by the pound than wild-caught tuna from the sea.

"These claims are meritless," a Subway spokesperson said in a statement to MSN's Insider. "Tuna is one of our most popular sandwiches. Our restaurants receive 100% wild-caught tuna, mix it with mayonnaise and serve on a freshly made sandwich to our guests."

Subway's spokesman claims a serving of tuna contains only skipjack and yellowtail tuna from fisheries.

The spokesperson added: "Subway will vigorously defend itself against these and any other baseless efforts to mischaracterize and tarnish the high-quality products that Subway and its franchisees provide to their customers, in California and around the world, and intends to fight these claims through all available avenues if they are not immediately dismissed."

In 2020, Subway lost a lawsuit in an Irish court that ruled Subway sandwich rolls could not be legally defined as "bread" because of the high sugar content.
