Toxic Waste Candy Recalled for Being Toxic, O Sweet Irony!

An Indianapolis-based candy bar called Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge chew bars was recently recalled for...being toxic! Oh, nailed it! According to an FDA press release, the cherry flavored bar "contains elevated levels of lead .... that potentially could cause health problems, particularly for infants, small children, and pregnant women." It's like reverse-reverse psychology! Also, amazingly, the toxic nuclear candy is imported from Pakistan, home of all things toxic and nuclear and delicious.
