No, this isn't a trick. Two popular types of Halloween candy -- Raisinets and Mega Pops lollipops -- have been recalled, very inconveniently right before Halloween. So before you start passing out treats to trick-or-treaters, here are 7 things you need to know.
- Foreign particles have been found in Mega Pops lollipops, and while the manufacturer, Colombina SA, claims there is no health risk, they're still pulling the fruity candies from retail shelves.
- Affected Mega Pops can be identified by UPC Code numbers 0 14272 10873 9 or 0 14272 10862 3, and are in lots marked as Lot #1240695, Lot #1209708, or Lot #120979 6.
- You can return the lollipops to the store where you purchased them for a refund or store credit. Call 1-888-317-3686 if you have any questions.
- The FDA has issued a nationwide recall for Raisinets Fun Size 10 oz bags of candy purchased at Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote retail stores in the US.
- The Raisinets may contain undeclared peanuts, creating an allergy hazard.
- Thankfully, the only product involved is 10 oz. fun-size bags, with a production code of 02015748 and UPC number 2800010255.
- Nestle is asking consumers to not return the recalled product to the store. Instead contact Nestlé Consumer Services directly at 1-800-478-5670 for a full refund.
