(Best Syndication News) - A recall has been announced for lot number A3057 of the Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Black Licorice that were sold at Costco and Smart & Final stores in California, Arizona, and Utah because they exceeded the safe lead level standards for these states.

The director of the CDPH and state health officer, Dr. Ron Chapman, said that the lead levels of the recalled licorice tested as high as 0.18 parts per million of lead. A serving of licorice could add up to 7.2 micrograms of lead. Children under the age of six should not have anything over 6.0 micrograms of lead each day from all sources of food.

The brand being recalled is the Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Black Licorice with Natural Ingredients and was sold in 1.5 lb (680g) packages. Each gusseted bag came with a zipper. The colors displayed on the package include red, white, and black.

The licorice involved in the recall was pulled from the store shelves at Costco and Smart & Final. The recalled licorice should not be eaten. Consumers who have purchased the licorice can take the remainder of the package back to the store for a refund.
