Mercury and silver bio-accumulate in the body, which means there is no mechanism in our systems to rid us of these toxic heavy metals.

How can the cooking industry sell confection that is intended to be put on cookies and cakes that contains mercury and silver?! "NOT INTENDED FOR CONSUMPTION"?!

How in the world is anyone supposed to know that?! I have never seen any warning labels on cookies for God's sake!

I checked the FDA's website and found an article prohibiting the sale of these items.

Yet when I searched the web, I found literally 100's of sites selling them without warning that they are not for consumption! Just type in 'dragees' to Google and see multitudes of sites selling poisonous food toppings!

The FDA doesn't prohibit the sale of them. They just recommend that you don't eat them. But, I mean, you can. I have and nothing happened to me. I wouldn't eat a whole thing of them, but to be honest... people use silver for all sorts of weird medical conditions and as "cures" for things. The tiny amount in the dragees is negligible.

Besides, the gold ones are probably even better, because tons of food, especially confections, contains gold plate or gold dust. And that's edible, too.

They clearly are edible and clearly not toxic unless you down like, fifty at a time, probably.
