Protect North Dakota Trick-Or-Treaters By Not Offering This Candy
Halloween is quickly approaching, so while you're out shopping for candy and decorating your house, avoid this sugary choking risk.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, KGR Distribution has recently issued a recall on 145,000 pieces of its Cocco Candy Rolling Candy due to the possibility that the candy's rolling ball could fall out and endanger children's lives by choking them. A seven-year-old girl choked and died in New York after a Cocco Candy Rolling Candy ball dislodged and became trapped in her throat.
The candy was offered for sale for around $2.50 per piece in Massachusetts, the rest of the nation, and online at www.kgrcandies.com. The Rolling Candy varieties that were recalled on October 5, 2023, are listed below.
|Product Name||Unit Barcode||Display Barcode||Carton Barcode|

The CPSC advises you to stop using them right away and keep them away from your kids if you have any of the varieties of the recalled Rolling Candy products in your house. By contacting KGR Distribution, you can request a complete refund for the item.
