Novelty chewing gum is being recalled because it could contain trace levels of lead, according to news reports .
Toxic Waste® Short Circuits™ Bubble Gum, by Circle City Marketing and Distributing, doing business as Candy Dynamics, of Indianapolis, IN, is being recalled. A U.S. Food and Drug Administration test found the gum, which is imported from Pakistan, to contain trace levels of lead.
The gum tested for lead at 0.189 parts per million; the FDA tolerance is 0.1 ppm.
The recalled gum includes: Toxic Waste® Short Circuits™ Bubble Gum labeled with UPC 0 89894 31001 3). 3.2 oz (90 g) size, Lot #15070SC12 (the Lot # is located along the left side of the bag).
So far no reports of injuries or food poising have been connected to the recall.
As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer, I urge parents to check if their kids have this brand of gum and throw it out or return it to the store of purchase for a full refund. Lead can cause health problems, particularly in those with compromised immune systems, including infants, small children, and pregnant women.
