Beware of toxic Candies

Posted by JMom | Friday, October 31, 2008 | , | 0 comments »

Just because it's Halloween, it's a good time to be reminded of some candies to look out for and remove from the kid's goodie bags. I must admit, with our fondness for trying things out at the Asian markets, my girls have had all these candies before. They won't be consuming them again for a while though. These candies were part of the long list of food items that are made in China and have been identified to have been contaminated with melamine.

The candies on the photo are the white rabbit candy, Koala's March Crème filled Cookies and Sherwood Brands Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins.

Note the brand name on the products. The chocolate coins especially concerned me as my daughter still love getting them. Just keep an eye out for the chocolate coins made in China, particularly the brand mentioned above.

Have a safe and happy halloween!
