Sherwood Brands Pirate’s Gold Milk Chocolate Coins imported from China may contain DEADLY MELAMINE and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has warned the public NOT to eat, distribute or sell the candy.

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 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.

Comments: True. Canadian news sources confirm that more than 3,000 kilograms (6,600 pounds) of Sherwood Brands Pirate’s Gold Milk Chocolate Coins manufactured in China were recalled from store
shelves on October 8, 2008 after they were found to contain melamine, a toxic chemical compound.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the gold foil-wrapped chocolates were being sold at Costco and other bulk and dollar stores across Canada. Though the amount of melamine found in the candy was very low and no injuries have been reported, the agency decided to issue a warning because the distribution of the product was so wide.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has not issued a recall because the product was only distributed in Canada, a representative of the agency told the Akron Beacon Journal. The FDA says it has taken “aggressive action” to ensure that no melamine-contaminated products reach store shelves in the United States. However, consumer advocates warn that some brands of candy sold in the U.S. are still manufactured in China and other foreign countries and the FDA has not always acted quickly enough to prevent contaminated products from reaching store shelves.

MELAMINE!!!  Do NOT eat any candy from China!  Please pass this information to your friends and family who have children.
