‘It was never the intent of banning some minor who wants to bake a cake’: Senator Addabbo sets the record straight on whipped cream cartridge ban


Minors are not banned from buying cans of whipped cream in New York, says state Senator Joseph Addabbo, who is setting the record straight on a misinterpretation of a bill introduced last year.

The bill, sponsored by Addabbo in November 2021, banned the sale of whipped cream cartridges, not cans of whipped cream. The bill’s summary states that it “prohibits the sale of whipped cream chargers to persons under the age of 21.”

The whipped cream cartridges contain nitrous oxide, which is known to cause limb spasms, hearing loss, brain damage, suffocation or heart failure when inhaled, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
