Popular Candy Recalled After 7-Year-Old Dies

Two candy manufacturers have issued recalls for a popular type of candy that could prove to be fatal to a child.

The Cocco Candy Rolling Candy Ball and Slime Licker Sour Rolling Liquid Candy have both been recalled after a 7-year-old girl choked to death on the Cocco Candy version, according to the U.S.

Consumer Product Safety Commission. Both types of candy are packaged in a container with a ball on the end, much like roll-on deodorant, that kids use to “roll” the candy onto their tongues. However, the ball can become dislodged and lead to a fatal choking incident, the commission reports.

New Jersey’s KGR Distribution is recalling about 145,800 Cocco Candy Rolling Candies, while Indiana’s Candy Dynamics recalls about 70 million Slime Licker Sour Rolling Liquid Candies, the recall notice reveals.

According to the Product Safety Commission, parents are being advised to take the candy away from their children immediately and bring it back to the store for a full refund.
