PSA: Chocolate Coin Recall in Canada

With Halloween fast approaching comes a warning to parents and kids regarding Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold milk chocolate coins imported from China . The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to eat, distribute or sell the candy.

It is sold across Canada (not the USA) by Costco and may also have been sold in bulk packages or as individual pieces at various dollar and bulk stores. The chocolate contains melamine which is the same chemical responsible for killing several babies in China , and sickening thousands more.

The National Post Online ran the story here.

I did verify the story at For the snopes story, you can click here. Snopes does say that the Sherwood Company's official statement said NONE of these candies were distributed in the USA.

Since we don't celebrate Halloween, I'm not worried by this. If you do trick-or-treat with your kids, this is just a good reminder to be safe. Please check the candy your kids receive and toss anything that looks partially open or suspicious. Better to toss a few candy bars that were ok than to be sorry you didn't.
