TBILISI, DFWatch–The National Food Agency calls on parents to be careful during the Christmas period after a two-year old accidentally swallowed a firecracker hidden inside a package of sweet corn chips.

The boy didn’t notice the firecracker among the chips and swallowed it. Monday, he was taken to the hospital. Doctors there said his life is in no longer in danger, but it could have been life-threatening if he had chewed the cracker.

In a short statement, the National Food Agency urged parents to be careful, and said it is unacceptable to sell food mixed together with other items.

Interpressnews quoted a doctor at Iashvili Hospital who said the child, who later left the hospital, is feeling well but was fortunate to have survived.

“The instructions on the pyrotechnic read that it is prohibited to wear it in the pocket,” the doctor said, adding that it was wrapped in a flower pattern and was placed together with the chips, as a surprise.
