Just in Time For Halloween: Candy Recall

This is making the rounds on Parenting Groups:

There is a new warning put out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency….Sherwood brand Pirate’s Gold Milk Chocolate coins are being recalled due to the fact that they contain Melamine, the ingredient in milk product that has caused many infant deaths in china. These candies are sold at Costco, as well as many bulk and dollar stores. please make sure to check your childrens halloween candy and DO NOT LET THEM EAT THE PIRATE COINS (you know the ones wrapped in the shiny gold foil) and please let other parents know about this!

A quick Snopes check finds verification.along with a company statement that only candy sold in Canada was affected.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency page on the recall may be found here.
