Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold milk chocolate coins, imported from China.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to eat, distribute or sell the candy.
It is sold across the US & Canada by Costco and may also have been sold in bulk packages or as individual pieces at various dollar and bulk stores.


(The chocolate contains melamine which is the same chemical responsible for killing several babies in China, and sickening thousands more.)

It comes from China. No one should be surprised.

These are being sold in Canada only and not the US it goes on to say. Nice heads up for our Canadian members.
