dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in
breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation may
also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek
immediate medical attention.

The products come in the
corresponding weight listed below in clear plastic package inside a master
paper carton with Sunrise Brand on the sides of carton.

or was under-eviscerated.
