Massive Candy Recall Involving Dangerous Shards of Metal Issued For KY, IN and IL
Just in time for summer sports and outdoor concession stands, the FDA has issued a huge recall for some of our favorite candy brands.
For our family, this would cause crazy disappointment because my kids don't like chocolate. Fruit-flavored candies are their go-to. But right now, putting your hand into a bag of your favorite fruit-flavored candy gummies could get you much more than you paid for. It could get you a piece of metal.
Reason for May 2022 FDA candy recall
According to a press release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), three brands of gummies are being recalled,
...due to the potential presence of a very thin metal strand embedded in the gummies or loose in the bag.
This recall affects the entire county.
