More Children’s Products are Recalled


A few weeks ago we discussed a number of recent recalls affecting children, including recalls involving Similac infant formula and cadmium tainted jewelry. Since then, there have been more recalls of products targeted toward children, some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

First, just before Halloween, a number of candy products were recalled, as reported in this blog post from First, Mega Pops, the popular lollipops commonly handed out to children at banks and other retail establishments, were recalled because of the risk of contamination by “minute pieces of stainless steel.” Also recalled were “fun size” packaged of Raisinets, the popular movie theater fare. The raisin and chocolate candy was recalled because of possible cross-contamination with peanuts, a serious issue for those with peanut allergies since the candy’s label didn’t include a warning to that effect.
