I am reporting on a product by Buffalo Snow which is called Frosty Snow. It is a fake snow for decorating. As my three year old granddaughter and I were sprinkling it on our Christmas village she accidentally inhaled a piece. It actually blocked her airway. Fortunately we had four CPR trained adults because we had to perform the Heimlich procedure and do a mouth sweep several times before she started breathing again. This product will kill a child. It is only a matter of time. Please look into this. Losing a child is horrible at any time but especially at Christmas with something that should be relatively safe.
