CALEXICO, Calif. – A food distribution company in Calexico is recalling candy imported from Mexico because it contains high levels of lead.
King Midas Inc. said Friday it is warning stores to stop selling Hola Pop, a caramel lollipop with a salted apricot in the center. The candy also comes in other fruit flavors.
The company says recent analysis of Hola Pop by the California Department of Public Health found that the candy contained a high level of lead.
Pregnant women and parents of children who may have consumed an Hola Pop candy are advised to consult their doctor to determine whether they should undergo medical testing.
