THE TRUTH APPEARS ON A CHEW BAR - THEY REALLY ARE TOXIC!
PAKISTAN RECALLS NUCLEAR WASTE!
It seems that the unexpected has really happened. A company has declared the truth on their product. Toxic Waste Candy really IS toxic. This is shocking news for the Pakistan company that manufactures the famous Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Chew Bar. Tests carried out by the California Department of Health found that a lot of the bars contained dangerously high levels of lead which could threaten the health of children and pregnant women. (So don't worry chaps - you're safe. Perhaps it's because men are already mentally retarded that it doesn't threaten their health. (I'm only thinking aloud.)) The US FDA limit on lead in food is 0.1 parts per million and the cherry flavour Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Bar was found to have levels as high as 0.24 parts per million. The FDA has announced a recall on all flavours of the 20 gram Nuclear Sludge Bars. Toxic Waste, the Pakistan manufacturer, has voluntarily recalled all flavours including the sour apple and blue raspberry as well as the cherry for extra safety.
The good news is that you can still buy related and similar products from the likes of A Quarter of..., Chewbz and Handy Candy in the UK and Candy.com, The Candy Warehouse and Old Time Candy in the US of A.
There is little doubt that any health risk is minimal and there has certainly been no known case of any detrimental effect. However these limits are set as "safe" limits and so should be adhered to. It is because these levels are set that they act also as a safety net and no one who has eaten the toxic waste should be concerned. Anyway - knowing how lead poisoning works it would be too late to worry anyway.
Other products by the same company are unaffected such as Pucker Sucker Lollipops, Dip & Lick, Hi Voltage Bubblegum, Short Circuit Bubblegum, Toxic Waste Sour Candy Spray and Toxic Waste Sour Candy Drums.
Lead poisoning can cause damage to the nervous system. It can, therefore, obviously cause damage to the brain! It can result in convulsions or seizures and can retard growth and mental development. In extreme cases it can cause coma and even death! But most cases of lead poisoning, short of falling in a molten vat of the stuff (which, incidentally, can also cause a rapid increase in body temperature, spontaneous combustion and death) are minimal and unlikely to be life threatening. Recent studies have indicated that traces of lead can be related to the development of kidney damage and may cause depression and panic disorders in some people.
Chocolate, on the other hand, is more associated with heightened feelings of pleasure and even excitement. You can buy lots of chocolate from people like Thorntons, Cadbury's, Green & Black or Motezuma's in the UK, or Vosges Haut-Chocolat or Nuts Online in the USA, or even exclusive stuff like zChocolat internationally.
