Can swallowing cherry stone be dangerous?

about 15 minutes ago, my 12 year old daughter thinks she swallowed a Cherry Stone, i m worried because she says that she doesnt really know if she did or not. if she did would this cause any problems? i have heard that cherry stones have cyanide in them, but only a small amount. please could you tell me or not if it will do any damage?

Hi,
I can reassure you that this will not cause any problems. The stone will eventually pass out in the stools. You do not need to take any further action.
