San Antonio Company Recalls Jars of Mexican Candy Because of Lead

Texas health officials say a San Antonio company is voluntarily recalling jars of candy imported from Mexico.

The Department of State Health Services found elevated lead levels in the dark-brown confection called Barrilito. Villa-Mex Imports is recalling the Barrilito, which is sold in barrel-shaped, 3.3 ounce jars with white plastic lids. The jars bear a yellow label with the name "Barrilito" in red-outlined letters.

State health officials say the Barrilito shows lead levels just above the threshhold deemed as hazardous by the Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have the recalled product should not eat it - and should return it or throw it away.

Officials say no cases of illness have been linked to the candy.
