Okay

Don't give it a second thought. There's isn't enough theobromine in the cocoa in that piece of brownie to intoxicate Lana. It takes 1/16 ounce of pure cocoa per pound of body weight to do so and that much wasn't present in the piece. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.

You're quite welcome. Lana had a nice snack and will remain safe. Thank you for your kind accept. I appreciate it. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
