Candy Recall!

I know we all are aware to check our children's candy they get when trick or treating for opened or tampered with treats but I wanted to advise you to also toss out any of the little "gold coins" chocolate they get to. Here is a link to check out http://www.snopes.com/food/warnings/coins.asp. This candy is sold at dollar stores at in bulk at places like Costco.

Re: Candy Recall!

Interesting and a bit scary. That article did specifically mention candy sold in Canada...not sure if the same candy was sold in the US though. Either way, I'll be looking out for those at Halloween!

Re: Candy Recall!

Thank you for the heads up! I will definitely be on the lookout for these in my kids treat bags.

Yes it is very scary. Apparently it has been sold in Costco nationally. I think it has been distributed from Canada. I figured I am not gonna take the chance, the kids will have plenty of candy in their treat bags and would not miss any I throw out. Hopefully by Halloween everyone gets this information.

I think somewhere online or maybe on the link you can find the product information if you still have the original packaging. I think most the dollar stores that sold this particular candy were in Canada but I think they were sold at Costco here in the states.
