If you hadn’t already thought twice about eating Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge candy bars, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just gave you good reason to opt for a Twix or Snickers instead.
The FDA announced Friday that the company that sells the bars, Indianapolis-based Candy Dynamics, has issued a voluntary recall of the product.
The recall comes after the California Department of Public Health found potentially unsafe levels of lead in the cherry-flavored Nuclear Sludge bars. The company is recalling all flavors of the bars, including sour apple and blue raspberry.
The FDA stressed that there have been no reported cases of people getting sick from the bars, which are manufactured in Pakistan.
