Toxic Waste Candy Recalled for Being Toxic

The irony here couldn't be deeper. A candy imported from Pakistan and marketed under the brand name Toxic Waste has been recalled by importer City Circle Marketing & Distributing (dba Candy Dynamics) for being…well, toxic. The California Dept. of Public Health found several flavors of the product contain elevated levels of lead.

Well, at least they can claim that anyone who ate it and got sick was forewarned. After all, the stuff is called Toxic Waste (in fact, the particular flavors the regulators fingered for excessive lead were from the Nuclear Sludge line, so consume at your own risk…).

Of course, there is also the question of why anyone would want to name, much less consume, anything named Toxic Waste. What, was Raw Sewage already taken?
