Consumers who have purchased the recalled candy corn should not eat it and should return it to the store for a full refund.

This Candy Corn Was Just Recalled in Several States

It’s that time of year again when candy corn is everywhere, but this year, one particular brand of candy corn has been recalled in several states. The candy corn, which is produced by the company Sweet Candy Company, has been recalled due to potential salmonella contamination.

The recall affects the company’s “Autumn Mix” candy corn, which is sold in 10-ounce bags. The product was sold in stores in Arizona, California, Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The product has a UPC code of 0-09141-03877-9 and a best-by date of October 2019.

The recall was issued after the company received a notification from one of its suppliers that the product may be contaminated with salmonella. The company has urged customers who have purchased the product to discard it immediately and contact the company for a full refund.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. If you have consumed the recalled candy corn and are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately.

This is not the first time that Sweet Candy Company has had to recall its products due to potential contamination. In 2017, the company recalled its “Autumn Mix” candy corn due to potential listeria contamination. The company has since taken steps to improve its safety protocols and is working with the FDA to ensure the safety of its products.

If you have purchased the recalled candy corn, you should discard it immediately and contact the company for a full refund. It is important to remember that food safety is of the utmost importance and that any product that is potentially contaminated should not be consumed.

If you’ve already started shopping for your stash of Halloween candy, you might want to check what you’ve purchased before you reach for a snack or hand out any sweet treats on the spooky night. One snack company from Massachusetts is recalling its candy because it did not indicate that egg was an ingredient on the packaging.

According to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) website, Arcade Snacks of Auburn, Mass. distributed its 15-ounce packages of yellow, orange, and white-striped candy corn to markets and grocery stores across Massachusetts and Connecticut. People who have an egg allergy could experience a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat the recalled product.

  • Johnson Roadside Farm Market in Swansea, Massachusetts

  • Foodies in Massachusetts
  • Windfall Market in Falmouth, Massachusetts
  • Highland Park Market in Glastonbury, Connecticut

The recall was announced on Friday, and at that time, no illnesses were reported, according to the FDA. Most brands of candy corn do contain egg whites, so those with the allergy may already know to avoid it.

Egg allergies are one of the most common food allergies for children. Symptoms from an egg allergy usually happen within minutes after consuming any foods containing eggs. They can range from skin rashes, hives, and nasal congestion to vomiting and other digestive problems. Sometimes egg allergies can cause anaphylaxis, which is life-threatening. If you think you are experiencing this, seek medical attention immediately.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled candy corn are encouraged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Anyone with questions can contact Arcade Snacks at (508) 832-6300 anytime Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST.
