There's an interesting response to the FDA warning from a vendor at
The vendor says "the warning is misleading because they're saying any foods". However, he then explains the precautions he uses to address the concern. The challenge is that his explanation doesn't mean that the warning is misleading, because I'm sure there are many vendors of similar products that don't use those precautions (as shown in the C&EN video). I know that Yale has provided generic advice about liquid N2 ice cream, but Andy's questions stand. Perhaps this is a risk assessment opportunity for a student ACS chapter to take on?
