Gum Recall: Lead

Candy Dynamics issued a recall of a single lot of Toxic Waste® Short Circuits™ Bubble Gum. Apparently, this gum puts the “T” in toxic. The recall came after the FDA found elevated levels of lead in the gum.

Everyone is reporting there have been no injuries and that is probably the case. But, let’s not kid ourselves: injuries from lead don’t show up in 5 minutes.
