Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Please don't be alarmed. Toxicology studies resulted in no toxicity or deaths in animals at dosages of hydroxycitric acid (Garcinia Cambogia) at 5,000 mg/kg, equivalent to 350 g or 233 times the maximum dosage of 1.5 g/day of hydroxycitric acid.

Bruce might experience a bit of gastrointestinal distress after eating something so unfamiliar to him but toxicity isn't expected. There's no need to induce emesis.

Please let me know any additional questions I can assist with today
