Nestle USA’s Confections and Snacks Division, based in Glendale, Calif., says it is recalling 25,000 Nestle Raisinets Fun-Size 10-ounce bags because some may contain “undeclared peanuts,” which could prove dangerous to people with peanut allergies.

And Miami-based Colombina USA spokesman Bradley Gerber tells WebMD that the company has recalled 90,000 bags of its popular Mega Pops brand lollipops because the candies may contain “traces of foreign particles,” believed to be tiny amounts of stainless steel.

The report states: "Nestle USA says only snacks with a production code of 02015748/UPC number 2800010255 production number are affected... Customers with questions should call 800-478-5670; the company says consumers also may email the firm at nestlecandy@casupport.com. And Colombina says it does not believe its lollipops pose a health risk but is withdrawing candies identified by UPC code numbers 0 14272 10873 9 or 0 14272 10862 3 in lots numbered 1240695, 1209708, and 1209796."
