Two candy makers are recalling treats sold nationwide because they contain rolling balls that can detach into a child’s mouth, posing a choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Thursday.
The federal agency’s warning comes six months after a seven-year-old girl choked and died in New York after a Cocco Candy Rolling Candy ball dislodged and became trapped in her throat.
Cocco Candy of Turkey and Passaic, New Jersey-based KGR Distribution are recalling about 145,800 Cocco Candy Rolling Candy sold in stores nationwide and online from May 2022 through March 2023 for about $2.50, according to the recall notice.
If you or a loved one has suffered losses due to consuming this, or any dangerous candy, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more, contact the trusted product liability lawyers at Breslin and Breslin today.
