OK, now that we’ve decided that banning everything is the way to go, rather than regulating products or educating people, what’s dangerous combinations will we be going after next?
Oh no!!! It’s alcohol and… dessert topping. My God, they’ll get drunk and fat at the same time. We must ban this immediately!!!!
Though the packaging resembles a standard canister of Reddi-wip, these creamy toppings pack between 15-18% alcohol by volume, making one container as powerful as three or four beers. While that’s a lot of whipped cream to consume in one sitting, Dr. Anita Barry, director at the Boston Public Health Department told the Boston Herald there is still concern about the potency of the products. “They can get a significant amount of alcohol in one shot,” she said, adding that there questions about whether the packaging sufficiently revealed the products’ high alcohol content.
What about the children????
…public health officials have also expressed concerns that the sweet flavor and familiar packaging will make the products appealing and dangerous to children.
Certainly this is a non-issue, right? I mean, it’s not like the dangers of alcohol and caffeine. They wouldn’t actually ban it. I’m just crying wolf, right?
Apart from the delisting in Michigan, as of now no other states have banned the products, but a source indicated to the Herald that the Massachusetts Alcohol Beverages Control Commission is closely monitoring the whipped toppings.
