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.
