US: Lucky Country recalls licorice products
Lucky Country, a US candy maker, has recalled all of its natural black licorice products due to elevated levels of lead.
The recalled products were distributed in: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia, and Washington State.
Tests conducted by the California Department of Health and the Food and Drug Administration found that Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Licorice Black contained a lead level exceeding the level permitted in candy.
Because of this finding, Lucky Country is voluntarily recalling all of its Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Licorice Black All Natural from the market.
