Fungi-Nail contains the non-toxic undecylenic acid 3%. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but BJ wasn't intoxicated and should remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
