    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!!!

    It's not Chocolate, so I won't worry about consuming any....I sounds like it is marketed for older kids.
