The amount of powder contained within the broth would be very minimal and should not result in any of the toxicity concerns you are worried about. However, it could still cause possible stomach upset, diarrhea, and less likely vomiting.

So, I see no indication for emergency treatment, but you will need to observe for any gastrointestinal complications for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Good Luck
