Justin Morrice recently had a terrible scare when his 10-month-old daughter, Annabelle. started to choke on one of her favorite snacks. He had given her some Gerber Lil' Crunchies, which are a baked corn snack with real cheese baked in. It was something Annabelle had eaten many times in the past, but this time, Justin had turned his back for just a few seconds when he turned around to find his baby girl gasping for air.
"She was trying to cry but no sound was coming out," wrote Justin in a Facebook post. "I rushed over and picked her up and turned her over and slapped her back (as we were taught) for what seemed like forever I still could not hear anything."
Not knowing what else to do, he jammed his finger down Annabelle's throat and managed to squish the snack enough to allow Annabelle to breathe. "The next thing I heard was the sweetest sound in the world... her crying" wrote Justin. It was the ""longest and scariest moment" of Justin's life."
After things settled down, Justin looked at the container, which even boasted that "These delicious snacks have a meltable texture making them easy to chew and swallow!"
That's when he noticed something in the fine print.
