Massive Candy Recall Affects Halloween for Kids in Massachusetts
Halloween is on the way and while you are decorating the house and picking up candy at the stores, you should take a look at any candy that you may already have in your home. One particular candy is a major choking hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that KGR Distribution recently issued a recall on 145,000 units of its Cocco Candy Rolling Candy as the candy's rolling ball can dislodge from the product into a child’s mouth, posing a choking hazard or death. A 7-year-old girl died from choking on the candy. The candy was sold in Massachusetts and throughout the rest of the country as well as online at www.kgrcandies.com for about $2.50 per unit. Below are the Rolling Candy flavors and products that were recalled on October 5, 2023.
