Mega Pops Recall - Metal Flakes Found in Lollipops

submitted on October 25, 2010 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is warning consumers about Colombina Mega Pops after tests found tiny pieces of metal in the candy.

The lollipops are sold in 28-ounce bags with a lot number 120979601171 or ELPACK #2. The candy is imported from Colombia.

Inspectors with the department’s Food and Drug Protection Division collected samples of the candy in response to a consumer complaint. Tests confirmed the presence of metal fibers and flakes in the candy. The department has communicated its findings to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the investigation is ongoing.

“Our staff will continue to pursue this investigation with FDA to determine how widely the candy was distributed,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “In the meantime, we don’t recommend buying this candy to stock your Halloween bowl. And if you have any of this candy, we recommend putting it in the trash or returning it to the place of purchase.”

    These days you have to worry about the makers of candy and not just those creepy neighbors.

    Raisinets also recalled for peanuts

    People allergic to peanuts should be extra careful about consuming Raisinets this Halloween. Nestle USA has recalled some 10 ounce "fun size" bags of the chocolate-covered raisins after learning that some of the bags contain peanuts, reports MSNBC. The recalled candy was sold at Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote retail stores in the U.S. Nestle USA issued the recall after receiving three consumer complaints about the peanuts. According to Nestle, the recall applies to Raisinets with a 02015748 production code and UPC number of 2800010255. Consumers may call Nestle at 1-800-478-5670 for a refund, but the candy shouldn't be returned to stores.
