‘Nuclear Sludge’ Candy|Has Lead in it, Says FDA

WASHINGTON (CN) - An Indianapolis company has voluntarily recalled Toxic Waste brand Nuclear Sludge candy imported from Pakistan, due to lead content, according to the Federal Drug Administration's Web site.

Jan. 13, Circle City Marketing and Distributing, doing business as Candy Dynamics, recalled its 0.7 oz. Nuclear Sludge candy, and now it is recalling the rest. According to the company's press release, testing showed that some pieces of the candy contained elevated levels of lead, which potentially could cause health problems, particularly for infants, small children, and pregnant women.

The company will discontinue the sale of Nuclear Sludge products in the United States, according to the press release.

The recalled Nuclear Sludge products were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders, and sometimes were packaged in a fish bowl.
