The Food and Drug Administration is warning about a new liquid nitrogen based food called Dragon's Breath.
The treat is typically sold at kiosks at malls, fairs and festivals.
The safety concern surrounds the temperatures of liquid nitrogen, which can be near 300 degrees below zero.
"We have to find the balance of what's fun and making sure it's safe," said Mosaic Life Care Dr. Cynthia Brownfield. "This is one of those products that doesn't seem to have the safety-ness behind it. So, I don't think it's a really smart idea to be consuming something that's that cold."
Doctors say ingesting it can cause burns, breathing difficulty and life-threatening injuries.
