I am ware of a 5 year old boy who died as a result of choking while attempting to swallow one half of a Fibercon tablet. Apparently the tablets swell when in contact with liquid and when it became lodged in his throat, it swelled to the point that it could not be dislodged. If anyone has heard of this or has any information regarding this type of problem please contact me. I am thinking that the size and shape of the pill may be an issue but am not aware of any type of study on this issue. Perhaps there should be one if this is a problem.
