Flamin' Hot Cheetos are sending kids to the ER!


Doctors are seeing an alarming increase in ER visits from kids who are eating a lot of the popular Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Already several schools in New Mexico, California and Illinois have banned the snacks from their campuses because of their poor nutritional value. However, they're not just making kids fat. They're driving them to the ER. 

Fortunately, they're not going for a real medical problem. Instead, the ER visits are driven by parents mistakenly assuming that their kids are pooping blood. These particular Cheetos contain a lot of red food dye, which has been known to turn consumers' stools red or orange. Parents see this, panic, and take them to the ER. 

Now you know. If you wanna fake sick, just eat a lot of red dye and you're set.
