Two Halloween candies recalled
Two popular Halloween candies have been recalled and a warning to parents has been issued that they may wind up in your child's trick or treat bags.
The recall involves Nestle's Raisinets in the fun size bags. Some bags may contain peanuts, which may potentially be harmful to those with nut allergies.
Also recalled were specific lots of Mega Pops lollipops. The candies may contain traces of metal particles.
Parents are advised to go through their kid's candy and to ask their children not to eat the candy they get home and it is inspected.
"It's so important that parents inspect the candy once they get home, before they give it to their children to eat," says Don Mays from Consumer Reports.
