FDA: Don’t cook chicken in NyQuil for TikTok challenge. Roasted chicken marinated with Nyquil? Health officials are warning the public of the dangers surrounding the latest deadly TikTok challenge making social media rounds.

It probably goes without saying, but don't cook chicken in Nyquil.

A recent social media post encouraged viewers to cook chicken with the ingredients acetaminophen, dextromethorphan and doxylamine.

The ingredients are commonly found in cold and flu products such as Nyquil.

"Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways," the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement. "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. It could also hurt your lungs."
