WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. Government says candy imported from Pakistan called Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge is not safe to eat. Who would have guessed?
The Food and Drug Administration announced the U.S. distributor of Nuclear Sludge Chew Bars is recalling the candy because of lead contamination. No one has been sickened, but the FDA said elevated lead content could be harmful to small children, infants and pregnant women.
The candies were manufactured in Pakistan. Indianapolis-based Candy Dynamics said it would stop selling all Nuclear Sludge Candy in the U.S. The candy is wrapped in bright yellow caution-like tape, and the company’s website features the screech of a blaring warning horn. The bars were distributed in stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
