The Union City, California-based American Licorice Co. has issued a voluntary recall of their Red Vines Black Licorice Twists product due to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) discovery of 0.33 parts per million of lead in the product. It has been reported that amount equals a whopping 13.2 micrograms of lead per serving . . . which is a level more than double the recommended amount deemed safe for children or women who are pregnant.
This Red Vines recall affects the 1 pound (16-ounce) bags of Red Vines Black Licorice Twists which carry the label “Best Before Date” of 020413. The “Best Before Date” can be found, in black ink, on the reverse of the product package. The California Department of Health has suggested that consumers of the product on recall should discard the black licorice, immediately. Pregnant women–as well as the parents of children–who have consumed the product are cautioned to consult with members of the medical community in order to arrange for any medical tests which might be necessary.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between the two wolves which reside in each of us. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
