I made a post about this abot 3 hours ago, but it never showed on the front page, due to the high volume of posting at that time. (

I'm glad you posted it, so maybe more people will know about it. I am on the email alert list from the CPSC, and it's scary how many lead-related recalls there have been lately.

I bet is is from mostly Chinese products. They don't have the same standards as us, yet the U.S. keeps importing their products w/out doing very good checks. Pretty sad. I try to buy Made in US when possible.

Thanks for the recall notice.

I posted a recall notice a couple weeks ago but it didn't get much response. Recall on white chocolate:
