Recall on Halloween candy - CAUTION - This is not a joke

Here's a real warning about tainted Halloween Candy. I checked out the Snopes link and they list it as True. However, it only affects Canada:

Sherwood Brands says those of its chocolate coins that contain melamine were vended only in Canada, that none of those confections reached the U.S.



Pass this along to everyone that has children that will go trick or treating.

There is a new warning put out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate coins are being recalled due to the fact that they contain Melamine, the ingredient in milk product that has caused many infant deaths in China.

These candies are sold at Costco, as well as many bulk and dollar stores. Please make sure to check your children's Halloween candy and DO NOT LET THEM EAT THE PIRATE COINS (you know the ones wrapped in the shiny gold foil) and please let other parents know about this!

Here's the link to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's recall notice:
