Chocolate Coins with Melamine in Canada

For all of my Canadian readers I would like to pass on the message to go through your children’s Halloween candy and watch out for any chocolate gold coins made by Sherwood. They were made in China and contain some of the chocolate that was contaminated with Melamine. To see my other post about recalled candy from China see HERE. Melamine can be highly toxic when ingested.

The chocolate was sold at Costco in Canada and possibly at dollar stores and bulk stores. The chocolate did not reach the U.S.

To verify the gold coin recall you can go to Snopes.

    Thanks Jessica!

    I wonder if this company has any other candy that is in the US. My new theory is one strike – likely no more buying..darnit
