Black Licorice Twists under recall by company, health department says
Special to the Tribune


American Licorice Company of Union City, Calif., is recalling 16-ounce packages of Red Vines Black Licorice Twists because of elevated levels of lead, Yavapai County Community Health Services said Monday.

Only the one pound bag (16 oz.) of Red Vines Black Licorice Twists containing "Best Before Date" of Feb. 4, 2013 (printed 020413), are affected by this recall. American Licorice is notifying consumers and customers not to consume this candy.

American Licorice Company stated, "Some Red Vines Black Licorice Twists contain levels of lead that could potentially cause health problems to consumers, particularly infants, small children, and pregnant women. American Licorice immediately segregated its entire inventory of 16 oz. Red Vines Black Licorice Twists. The 16 oz. bag is red and white in color with a window in the package to display the black licorice twists."

Consumers in possession of Red Vines Black Licorice Twists with the "Best Before Date" of 020413 should not eat the candy and should return it to their place of purchase for a full refund. The "Best Before Date" is located in black ink on the rear of the package.

Pregnant women and parents of children who may have consumed Red Vines Black Licorice Twists should consult with their physician or health care provider to determine whether further medical testing is required, the news release states. For more information about lead poisoning, parents and caretakers should contact their local childhood lead poisoning prevention program or local Yavapai County Community Health Services, which online at YavapaiHealth.com.

American Licorice will be sending recall notices to all of its affected customers. Please contact American Licorice Consumer Support at 866-442-2783 for further information.
