Nintendo Switch cartridges intentionally taste bitter to dissuade ingestion
Several media outlets have been reporting that Nintendo Switch cartridges taste bitter. After Kotaku sent an inquiry, Nintendo responded, stating:
To avoid the possibility of accidental ingestion, keep the game card away from young children. A bittering agent (Denatonium Benzoate) has also been applied to the game card. This bittering agent is non-toxic.
So, how many of you are going to lick your Switch cartridges as soon as you get them?
