    Huh, is it a trick question? I’d think that it’s a regulation problem not an intake problem.

    Adverse effects have only been documented from vitamin B6 supplements and never from food source. It is very rare to get an overdose of Vitamin B6 from food intake, it can occur in people whose kidneys do not excrete the vitamin and its metabolites properly.

    High vitamin B6 foods · bananas · bell peppers · chick peas · potatoes (baked with skin) · prune juice · raw rice bran · turnip greens · spinach.
    Wholegrains are listed (on the link) way down the B6 foods. Perhaps your teacher is referring to fortified cereals. “Vitamin B6 is found in fortified cereals”
