Is there a risk of choking when chewing gum is swallowed?


While chewing gum is not intended to be swallowed, it presents no greater risk of choking than any other food.  

As with any food product, chewing gum, in exceptional circumstances, can present a risk of choking for children and even adults. 

As such, we believe that mindful consumption and broad-based training in first aid response remain the most effective means of preventing choking.
