Washington, D.C., United States (AHN) - Kids don't have a taste for it, but adults seem to. So this Halloween, when you reach for the black licorice shunned by your child, be careful about consuming too much.
The Food and Drug Administration has warned that black licorice consumed in large quantities can lead to heart arrhythmias and other health problems.
Experts say that consuming 2 ounces of black licorice per day for two weeks can case irregular heartbeats in susceptible adults over the age of 40.
