"It can do great deal of damage to the brain. It can do a great deal of damage to the nerves and the arms and the legs, but you have to ingest it," said neurologist Arthur Weiss.

Consumers are being encouraged to throw away the bags made in China.
Several grocery stores have already pulled the products from their stores.
