Halloween Candy Recall: 7 Things You Need to Know

Brittny Drye

Raisinets RecallNo, 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. 
  5. The Raisinets may contain undeclared peanuts, creating an allergy hazard.
  6. Thankfully, the only product involved is 10 oz. fun-size bags, with a production code of 02015748 and UPC number 2800010255.
  7. 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.
