Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your concerns today.

Fortunately, there is no danger from Isabella consuming the walnuts. There is no known toxicity associated with this. There may be some mild GI effects, perhaps less of an appetite tonight & a soft stool tomorrow, but I would not expect any other problems.

I hope this makes sense & you find the information helpful. lease let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.
