A candy recall has been announced just in time for Halloween.
Sherwood Brands Pirate?s Gold Milk Chocolate Coins contain melamine, the ingredient that has caused numerous infant illnesses and deaths in China. Melamine is a chemical compound is used in a number of industrial products and is harmful if ingested.
The candies have been sold at Costco, and other bulk food and dollar stores. The affected candies are sold in bags with 240 pieces of chocolate in the bag. The product was sold widely across Canada, but supposedly, no tainted candy has reached other countries.
There have been no illnesses reported at this time, and the Canadian government feels that the risk of illness is very low. Despite this, it has issued the recall.
