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.

(Best Syndication News ) - Making healthy lifestyle choices in old age can increase lifespan by up to six years for men and up to five more years for women, according to a Swedish study published in the online edition of BMJ. Healthy lifestyle choices include not smoking, eating right, staying physically active, and staying socially.

The researchers wanted to see if having healthy habits were just as important after a person turns 75. They wanted to see if there was an extension on a person's lifespan.

To investigate, the researchers studied 1,800 participants that were tracked from 1987 to 2005. Over the 18-year period, the participants were documented for their age, sex, occupation, education, lifestyle habits, what they did in their leisure time, and their socializing network.
