Parents should thoroughly inspect their child’s Halloween trick-or-treating bags. This year, neighbors may be handing out two different types of recalled candies. Some Nestle Raisinets 10-ounce “fun size” bags were found to contain peanuts, making them a significant risk for anyone with nut allergies. Three complaints have been reported so far. Also make sure the trick-or-treaters didn’t receive any Mega Pops with watermelon, cherry, orange and grape flavors. These Colombina brand lollipops could contain foreign particles, stated the FDA. Specific 14-ounce and 28-ounce bags of the lollipops are included in the recall.
As a Seattle personal injury attorney, I recommend checking to see if you have any of these candies immediately and during Halloween. “We are always guided by customer safety and satisfaction,” said Carlos Gil, Colombina USA Vice President. “Using an abundance of caution, we are working with all our valued retailers to quickly remove the product from the shelves. We’ve also set up a special 24 hour hotline to answer any questions consumers may have.” The lollipops were distributed nationally. Retailers have been asked to remove the product from their stores. Customers are asked to call Colombina at 1-888-317-3686 with any questions, and Nestle at 800-478-5670. Customers may return the product for a full refund or store credit.
