One of the Red Vines Black Licorice Products involved in Recall - CDPH

(Best Syndication News) - The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced the recall of more Red Vines licorice products because they tested higher than the state standards for lead. This recall comes on the heels of another recall announced by the American Licorice Company. The new products include Red Vines® Black Licorice, Snaps®, and Mixed Bags containing Black Licorice Candy.

The first recall was announced on August 22, but now more products have been determined to exceed the state's standards for lead levels.

The CDPH is asking consumers who have the recalled product to not eat it and instead they should throw out the product.

The products were packaged in various sizes and came in different forms. The black licorice portion is what tested positive for excessive lead levels. Not included in the recall are the Red Vines® Sugar Free Black Licorice and their Red Flavor Licorice products.

The expanded Red Vine Black Licorice recall includes:

• Black Licorice Bar, 2.5 oz.
• Jumbo Black Licorice Hanging Bag, 8 oz.
• Black Licorice Tray, 5 oz.
• Black Licorice Laydown Bag, 7 oz.

The maker of the candy is American Licorice Company and they are located in Union City, California. They are working with government agencies to recall the products.
