The FDA confirmed that Mamba® brand candy poses no health risk to the public. The FDA also has determined and stated that the manufacturer of Mamba, August Storck KG, is in compliance with FDA requirements relating to the use of gelatin. Fears about the safety of the candy were raised earlier this month when authorities in Poland detained more than 9000 food and drug products containing beef and beef by-products originating from 12 different European Union nations. Mamba was one of the products listed in the extensive Polish action.
