Just in time for Halloween, we have some truly scary news to report. Two candy recalls have been announced, so you’ll need to check the treats you’re giving out, and be sure to do a sweep of your kids’ haul before you let them dig in.
Mega Pops Lollipops: Certain lots of Mega Pops lollipops are being recalled because the candy may contain "minute traces" of stainless steel, according to candy maker Colombina SA. The recalled lots of watermelon, cherry, orange and grape-flavored lollipops -- totaling about 90,000 bags -- were sold at Dollar General, Family Dollar, Variety and Fred's stores as well as through wholesalers.
Raisinets: Nestle is recalling some lots of Raisinets Fun Size Bags (10oz) which may contain undeclared peanuts after three complaints (although there is a warning on the bag that the products is made on equipment that also processes peanuts). People who are allergic to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The bags were sold in Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote retail stores.
