Halloween Candy Warning: Recall on Massachusetts Made Candy Corn
A Massachusetts-based candy company is recalling their candy corn and many of the bags they say are affected were sold right here on the SouthCoast.
Auburn’s Arcade Snacks makes a variety of snacks and trail mixes, but it's their seasonal candy corn they say consumers shouldn't eat.
The candy maker issued a voluntary recall this week on their 15 ounce bags of candy corn due to undeclared egg in the product.
According to the FDA, the candy corn's undeclared egg could be hazardous to those with egg allergies who run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
No reports of reaction have been reported to date, but SouthCoast residents could have these affected candy corn packages in their homes.
The recall announcement says that packages of Arcade Snacks candy corn was distributed to:
- Johnson Roadside Farm Market in Swansea
- Fieldstone Farm Market in Marion
- Windfall Market in Falmouth
- Donelan’s Supermarkets in Massachusetts
- Foodies in Massachusetts
- Highland Park Market in Glastonbury, Connecticut
The product comes in a 15 ounce, clear plastic container marked with UPC #0 18586 00114 4 and a best by date of 3/8/2023 on the label on the back panel.
Consumers who have purchased 15 ounce packages of Arcade Snack's candy corn are urged to return them to the place they purchased them for a full refund. Consumers with questions can also contact the Auburn company directly at 508-832-6300 Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm ET.
