- Food and Drug Branch: Lead in Candy
The California Department of Public Health, Food and Drug Branch (FDB) has been charged with the implementation of Assembly Bill 121, to prevent the sale of adulterated candy to infants, young children, and pregnant women. FDB's Lead in Candy Program is responsible for the collection and testing of candy samples. Enforcement action is taken when adulterated candies are identified and appropriate notifications are made to local environmental health directors and the public.
The Department has issued numerous Health Alerts for adulterated candies. For additional information about lead poisoning, consumers are advised to contact their local childhood lead poisoning prevention program or public health department. A website list of local childhood lead prevention programs is available at: http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/CLPPB/Pages/CLPPPIndex.aspx.
