Candy Suckers

I was talking to an EMT a few weeks ago and he informed me that last year around Halloween he had quite a few emergency calls for children who were having a reaction from eating candy suckers. He couldn't remember the name of the company but said there was an allergy warning on the outer package but the individual suckers did not have an ingredient list on them. I know that in my daughters case I will not let her eat anything unless there is an ingredient list but he said quite a few parents thought who would put peanut oil in suckers? These suckers were manufactured overseas and sold in Canada. I'm not sure if they were sold in the United States or not. I know I will be double checking everything this Halloween. I just wanted to let everybody know to be on the look out for these suckers.

When my ds had his first rxn in July I went through my pantry and got rid of anything peanut. As I was going through an old bag of Halloween lollipops (clear, shaped like a pumpkin), I flipped over the bag, and sure enough, MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS! DOH! I was in shock! It was so unexpected. I have since looked at many lollipops...MANY contain warnings. My son eats Dum Dum, Tootsie Roll, and Jolly Rancher...and that is it...and only if I can read the label on the bag or pop!
