A U.S. company, Candy Dynamics of Indianapolis, is recalling part of their Toxic Waste candy line; Some Nuclear Sludge Chew Bars, imported from Pakistan, are actually hazardous.
The FDA, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has issued a recall which says in part:
"A recent test performed by the California Department of Public Health has indicated that a lot (#8288A) of the cherry flavor of the above-listed product (Toxic Waste® brand Nuclear Sludge® Chew Bars all flavors) contains elevated levels of lead (0.24 parts per million; the U.S. FDA tolerance is 0.1 ppm) that potentially could cause health problems, particularly for infants, small children, and pregnant women.
The candy company website carries this warning: "This candy is rated DANGEROUS." . . . and folks say there's no truth in advertising.
