RaisinetsImage by cthoyes via FlickrMore Halloween candy has been recalled as the FDA announces the recall of Mega Pops lollipops. The lollipops may contain traces of foreign particles although the manufacturer, Colombina SA, claims there is no health risk.
The product is distributed in retail stores across the United States, including Family Dollar stores here in Rhode Island. The product comes in 14 oz and 28 oz cellophane bags in watermelon, cherry, orange and grape flavored pops.
The FDA has issued a nationwide recall for Raisinets Fun Size 10 oz bags of candy as some may contain undeclared peanuts. The Nestle Raisinets are in fun sized packages that may have been purchased by consumers for Halloween at Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote retail stores in the US.

If a person eats the product who is allergic to peanuts, they may have a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.Three complaints have been received to date, although there is a statement on the package that reads, "equipment that also processes peanuts," Nestle indicates that the product may actually contain peanuts.
Recalled Raisinets product code and UPC number
The only product involved is Nestlé Raisinets Fun Size Bags (10oz) with a production code of 02015748/UPC number 2800010255. No other Nestlé products are impacted.
