However the high salt content of the nuggets has led to a serious health scare for the 17-year-old factory worker who collapsed at work and was rushed to the hospital.

Though Irvine is back at home, doctors have warned her to change her diet if she wanted to avoid a similar incident which could prove to be fatal. Her mother, Evonne revealed that she refuses to eat anything else and added that she is looking to get help from a specialist to make her daughter change her diet.
