FDA Recalls Candy Named Nuclear Sludge for High Toxicity Levels

Excessive level of lead in the candy of an American Company has resulted in the conglomerate announcing the recall of its product that was exported to Canada. The brand has been identified as Nuclear Sludge by Toxic Waste.

All the flavours of Nuclear Sludge face the recall that has been implemented by none other than the US Food and Drug Administration. The decision was made public on Thursday for the eight-gram packets of the product.

It needs to be remembered that prior to this announcement, 20-gram packages of the same product were recalled earlier this month on the 13th of January.

A release by the US regulator has stated that though, some of the products of the smaller packages had permissible limits of the candy. But, at the same time there were other packages, in which, there was an excess of lead levels.

Lead is known to be hazardous to the health of human beings. It has a negating effect on the health of small children, infants and pregnant women. According to information available, lead levels in some of the products were found to be as high as .331ppm, whereas permissible limit should not be greater than 0.1ppm.

The product was being distributed by Circle City Marketing and Distributing from Indianapolis and was imported from Pakistan.
