  • besides the candies listed there are coffees and teas on the list: see post here


    Honestly what I've done, (we already went) is looked at all the labels and if it said made in China I've pitched it! This last wave of stuff from China is what broke the straw on this camels back! I won't having anything from China here.....

  • The issue is not lead...it's melamine! Melamine has killed 4 babies IN china and has caused serious illness to 54,000 other children

  • I was just watching the news and it said alot of the mexican candy has tested positive for lead. Mainly the packaging it was in, or a certain ingredient having it from the soil where it was grown. Sorry I can't remember what the ingredient was they said on the news
