All Mega Pops Removed From Shelves, Foreign Particle Concern

After a scare about metal flakes in Mega Pops lollipops, Colombina has asked store owners to remove all Mega Pops from their shelves as they investigate the candy for foreign particles.

They have also expanded the recall to include both 14 and 28 oz size bags of watermelon, cherry, orange and grape flavored pops, and the following identifiers:

UPC Code numbers 0 14272 10873 9 or 0 14272 10862 3
Lot #’s 1240695, 1209708, or 1209796

You can find the lot number in a white square on the lower left hand side of the back of each bag.

Consumers can return the product to the store for a refund, or throw them away. The lollipops were sold at Family Dollar and other discount stores.

Consumers with questions can call a toll-free hotline at 1-888-317-3686.
