    There's no false advertising on this one!!!

    An Indianapolis-based candy distributor has recalled all Toxic Waste brand Nuclear Sludge Chew Bar candies after California health officials said they found unacceptable levels of lead from the Pakistan-imported candies.

    What else can you expect from a candy with a name like that?

    Anything that comes from another country NEEDS to be tested. They have different regulations than our country.
    I don't understand why they can't just make candy here!!!

    the trouble is we do make candy, cooking pots, dishes, etc. but we export it all and import other countries mess!
    i try very hard not to buy things made in China but it's hard.
