Recall of Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge candy products expanded to include smaller pieces
The FDA has issued an expanded recall of all Toxic Waste brand Nuclear Sludge products, that now includes small pieces of the candy.
The recall is voluntary and prompted by higher than tolerable levels of lead detected in the candies.
The upper limit per the FDA is 0.1 ppm. Some of the candy, marketed by Circle City Marketing and Distributing, under the name Candy Dynamics, Indianapolis, IN, were found to contain 0.101 parts per million to .311 ppm of lead that could pose health risks especially for infants, children and pregnant women.
The small pieces of Nuclear Sludge under recall, sold individually, as part of a 'Party Bag’ or Membership kit include:
Toxic Waste® Nuclear Sludge® Cherry (UPC 0 89894 81901 1)
Toxic Waste® Nuclear Sludge® Green Apple (UPC 0 89894 81701 7)
Toxic Waste® Nuclear Sludge® Blue Raspberry (UPC 0 89894 81801 4)
To date no illnesses have been reported. The candy was also sold in Canada and in limited quantities in Guatemala, Ireland, Jordan, Korea, Mexico and El Salvador.
The company, Candy Dynamics is contacting customers about the recall and will stop distributing Nuclear Sludge® products in the U.S. Consumers who purchased the products can contact Eileen O’Neal at 317-228-5012 (Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm EST) for further information.
The expanded recall of the Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge products now includes small pieces of the candy and follows a January 13, 2011 recall of chew bars. The candy is manufactured in Pakistan.
