New industry guidance has been issued on glycerol content in slush-ice drinks, advising that the drinks should not be sold to children four years of age and under.
The updated guidance follows an FSA (Food Standards Agency) risk assessment which found that children below this age may suffer from headaches and sickness caused by exposure to glycerol.
