San Antonio Company Recalls Another Mexican Candy

January 9, 2008

Another Mexican candy is being recalled by a San Antonio, Texas, importer due to elevated levels of lead that could cause health problems.

The Texas Department of State Health Services says Villa-Mex Imports is voluntarily recalling a third candy imported from Mexico: Miguelito Azucar Salada Enchilada Acidulada.

The candy is a reddish powder in a clear cellophane packet with blue lettering.

The net weight is marked as 1.7 ounces.

The label also reads: Elaborado Por: Fabrica de Dulces Miguelito, S.A. DE C.V. Totonacas No 293 Col. Ajusco Coyoacan, Mexico.

Villa-Mex earlier voluntarily recalled Barrilito and Tarritos.

DSHS says consumers who have the recalled products should return them or throw them away.
