Topps Candy- Bazooka, ringpops etc not safe
Hi all- I recently gave in to buying the Ring Pops (by Topps) because there wasn't a warning on them. I promptly called the company and was told that ALL their candy products- Bazooka gum, Pokemon candy, Baby Bottle Pop, Push Pop and Marvel Splash were unsafe for anyone with a life-threatnening allergy to peanuts. (this includes the gum in the trading cards) I asked why and the woman stated because of the packing procedure. I asked her to explain further and she refused I don't think she really knew). I then asked why a cross contamination warning was not on the label. She sighed heavily and said "I don't know, why don't YOU call our legal department and deal with them". I am going to call of course. I waited a few days and called back and asked the same questions. I was told the same things. Over all impression- they felt annoyed by my questions and didn't really care. I will call their legal dept this week and let you know what I find out- I don't think much will come of it though. The Topps customer # is 1-800-489-9149 in case someone wants to double check for themselves. They have a website [url="http://www.Toppscandy.com"]www.Toppscandy.com[/url] but they don't accept emails at this time. Take care, Kelly
