On January 13, 2011, Nuclear Sludge Cherry Chew Bars were voluntarily recalled by it's distributor, Candy Dynamics, and the product is imported from Pakistan.
What does this mean for you?
A recent test performed by the California Department of Public Health has indicated that a lot (#8288A) of the cherry flavor of the above-listed product contains elevated levels of lead (0.24 parts per million; the U.S. FDA tolerance is 0.1 ppm) that potentially could cause health problems, particularly for infants, small children, and pregnant women. Out of an abundance of caution, the company has determined to recall all lots and all flavors of the product distributed from the product's inception in 2007 through January 2011. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this product.
What should you do if you still have any of these Chew Bars in your possession?
Anyone in possession of the recalled product should telephone the company for information on destruction of the product. Please call Eileen O’Neal at 317-228-5012 (Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm EST) for further information.
