FDA: Toxic Waste® gum is toxic
from The Huffington Post
A type of bubblegum sold under the name Toxic Waste® Short Circuits now is being recalled by its distributor because it's, well, toxic. Recent tests performed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that Toxic Waste® Short Circuits — which is made in Pakistan — contained unsafe levels of lead. Ironically, Indianapolis-based Circle City Marketing and Distributing promotes its products via the buzz phrase, "Hazardously Sour Candy." The company's website features videos with such titles as "Toxically Wasted" and "Black Cherry Holocaust: A Toxic Waste Adventure." It was announced recently that the FDA-tested gum contained 0.189 parts of lead per million; the FDA's limit is 0.1 parts per million.
