Digital News Report – The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a warning that BAVAN brand Sugar Rewari candy tested high for lead. The government agency suggests that consumers should not eat the candy, but instead should dispose of it.
The CDPH test results of the BAVAN Sugar Rewari candy showed as high as 1.2 parts per million of lead contamination. In the state of California, anything containing over 0.10 parts per million of lead is considered to be contaminated.
The importers and distributors of the candy is Bavan Food Company, which is located in Sacramento, California. The company is working with the CDPH. They will be voluntarily recalling the candy product from store shelves.
The candy is sold in 10.5-ounce clear plastic bags that have an orange border with a label that says “BAVAN Brand Sugar Rewari (Candy),” or “BAVAN Brand Sugar Reori (Candy),” or “BAVAN brand Sugar Redoi (Candy)”. The candy is light brown in color and has an elliptical shape.
The CDPH agency suggests that pregnant women and children who may have eaten the candy should talk with their doctor to see if medical tests are necessary.
