UPDATE: Lucky Country Recalls ALL Natural Black Licorice
Licorice recalled due to elevated lead levels.
Lucky Country Inc. of Lincolnton, NC is recalling all of its natural black licorice products. This is an extension beyond a previous recall we wrote about.
Recent analysis of this candy by CDPH determined that the product contained as much as 0.15 parts per million (ppm) of lead. California considers candies with lead levels in excess of 0.10 ppm to be contaminated.
Because of this finding, Lucky Country is voluntarily recalling all of its Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Licorice Black (All Natural) from the market. In addition to the 1.5 lb bags, Lucky Country also manufactures this natural black licorice product in 6 oz and 3 lb bags, and in a 1 lb tub.
Consumers in possession of Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Black Licorice candy should discard them immediately. Pregnant women and parents of children who may have consumed this candy should consult their physician or other health care provider to determine if medical testing is needed.
This recall now extends to California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia, and Washington State.
