By now, the name of Candy Kingdom is synonymous with sugar babies and candy, and it’s been around since at least the 1980s.
But what about the candy industry itself?
Well, Candy Kingdom has been around for decades, but it’s gotten its own fair share of controversy recently, especially after it was revealed that the company was in violation of the FDA’s “mandatory labeling” standards, which require companies to state how their products are made and labeled.
It’s not just a sugar-laden candy.
According to the FDA, the company’s candies also contain lead and arsenic, which the agency says can cause kidney and liver damage.
In response to the allegations, the brand was taken off shelves in the United States and Canada.
However, the FDA still issued a voluntary recall in August, meaning people can purchase the candies that contain the ingredients in their original packaging, even if they have a label warning against their use.
According in part to BuzzFeed News, the recall is based on the company voluntarily recalling all the candymakers it sold before its voluntary recall, which means that, unless a new version is introduced, consumers will still have to buy the candys from the original manufacturer.
While the FDA does not specifically prohibit the use of the word “candy” in candy, its voluntary recalls do not necessarily stop companies from selling products with it.
In fact, some companies are using the word to refer to products with the ingredients.
“We’ve had a lot of questions about the word ‘candy’ over the years, and now that the word is finally being regulated, it’s time for some transparency,” Candy Kingdom’s co-founder and CEO, Dan Osterman, told BuzzFeed News.
“It’s a brand that’s been synonymous with this brand since its inception, so the FDA can take this opportunity to make sure that consumers are aware of the ingredient labels that they’re consuming.”
The FDA is currently conducting a public comment period on the recall.
The candy industry is notoriously secretive, so it’s not clear whether or not the recall will affect all of the companies participating.
For now, people can still buy the original packaging of Candy King products.
According the FDA: In addition to the candy in its original packaging that was made before the voluntary recall was instituted, there are also the original candymaker packages that are available for purchase on the website, www.sugarcandyking.com, which include the candy and other ingredients.
These are the original packages that were made before this voluntary recall.
Consumers who have purchased these candymaking packages are encouraged to return them to the original package and to contact the company for assistance.
The FDA says the recalled candymakes will be returned to the candylakes and will be sold only to customers who purchased the candy at the time of purchase, which could include customers who received the candy through a mail-order, online, or through a carrier.

Candy Kingdom spokesperson Matt Feltner told BuzzFeed that the recall was a mistake.
He said that the candy company will continue to market the candydough in the way it has for decades: with its trademarked name.
“Sugar candy has a long and distinguished history and tradition,” he said.
“That’s why we’re so excited to be able to continue the tradition with our trademarked Candy King brand.
We know that this voluntary voluntary recall is a very difficult situation for many people to handle, but we hope to have our customers back in no time.”
