if i remember correctly, a few people die every year in japan from eating mochi (mostly elderly) by suffocating on it just as with the small konyaku jelly cups.  i myself love konnyaku products.  and julius, how many people will die every year from eating such great foods as mcdonald's, junk food, etc.?
lately i have found these japanese fruit jello cups that also have cubes of nata de coco.  yummmm...

Dear All,

This is so stupid that it makes me cringe!  !7 children and
''seniors''  in  13 years reportedly die from choking on
konnyaku candy.  It would be of great interest to see how many died from say
choking on whale meat, or a fish bone, or any food product or hard candy, or
from eating puffer fish in the same time period.  Are ANY of these other items
banned?   I bet not!   I wish that the ''powers'' that be would
just stop trying to save me/us from ourselves!
