The #MilkCrateChallenge is the current hot social media — and potentially dangerous — challenge… and the Food and Drug Administration is asking you not to do it. Starting as a viral challenge on TikTok, people attempting to ascend a rickety pyramid of stacked milk crates and make it down the other side. Many are trying, the vast majority are failing — miserably. … Conan O’Brien weighed in on the social media craze on Monday, tweeting: “Waiting for FDA approval before I take the Milk Crate Challenge.” The FDA responded: “Although we regulate milk, we can’t recommend you try that. Perhaps enjoy a nice glass of 2% and return all those crates to the grocery store?”
One social media comment sums it up:
That looked like it hurt. Be careful in doing these stunts. Remember the hospitals near you may be full. So if you really need an ambulance or ER you may not be able to get the medical help you need. This really seems dangerous.
