Have you ladies heard the latest recall?? Halloween candy, be cautious.

(you can verify this on snopes: http://www.snopes.com/food/warnings/coins.asp)

There is a new warning put out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency....
Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate coins are being recalled due to the fact that they contain Melamine, the ingredient in milk product that has caused many infant deaths in china. These candies are sold at Costco, as well as many bulk and dollar stores. please make sure to check your childrens halloween candy and DO NOT LET THEM EAT THE PIRATE COINS (you know the ones wrapped in the shiny gold foil) and please let other parents know about this!


i figured this would be a good place to get this information out there. its not just the coins.....be very leery for the ingredient "milk powder" in your childrens candies!!!

  • anonymous, what the heck are you talking about? snopes lists references for all of it's information, including this one, with government website information etc concerning the recall. i wish people would actually do some research before opening their mouths.

  • Yep I posted the same question 2 days ago: http://www.cafemom.com/answers/60665/Candy_Recalled_Has_Melamine_that_caused_infants_to_die?cat_id=27


    The recall is for the candy in Canada, NOT in the USA; although I would just be careful with anything from China.....
