Child’s Death Sparks Mass Candy Recall

Child's Death Sparks Mass Candy Recall

( – Months after a young girl died after eating one, the manufacturers of over seventy million liquid roller sweets issued a recall.

Candy Dynamics Inc. recalled around 70 million pieces of its “Slime Licker Liquid Candy,” while KGR Distribution Corp. recalled 145,800 pieces of its “Cocco Candy Rolling Candy.”

Cocco Candy Rolling Candies” were recalled after a young girl, seven years old, from New York choked to death after eating one. The child’s death was caused by the candy ball, which rolls while dispensing a sweet liquid, being dislodged from its housing and becoming stuck in her throat.

Rolling candy is a kind of liquid candy that is topped with a moving ball. Rolling the ball on one’s tongue causes the liquid within to be dispersed.

No one was hurt when the rolling ball in two “Slime Licker Liquid Candies” were dislodged in the same manner.

The FDA advised parents to remove the products from their children and notify the company for a refund if the product still contains liquid candy. Customers may simply get in touch with Candy Dynamics to arrange for a free return shipment.

The two-ounce packages of “Cocco Candy Rolling Candy” in Sour Cola, Sour Tutti Frutti, and Sour Strawberry flavors are affected by the recall. There is a cartoon youngster with his tongue out on the top of the product’s long handle, with the cap shaped like a ball.

KGR Distribution Corp. distributed it to retail outlets throughout the country and online between May 2022 and March 2023 at a price of roughly $2.50.

Canisters of 2 oz. and 3 oz. sizes of “Slime Licker Liquid Candy” in Toxic Cherry, Blue Razz, Strawberry, and Sour Apple flavors have been recalled. Those sweets come in wrappers that read “TOXIC WASTE” or “SLIME LICKER Sour Rolling Liquid Candy” and include a cartoon smoke cloud with its tongue hanging out.

From June 2015 to July 2023, the sweets were offered for $2 to $4 at locations like Five Below, Amazon, Walmart, and other online retailers.
