The China Syndrome: Canada Recalls White Rabbit Candy

CFIA has announced a nation-wide recall of all White Rabbit brand candy. The agency has advised the Canadian public not to "... consume, distribute or sell..." any flavor or variety of White Rabbit candy, due to the risk that it may contain melamine.

In recent days, government labs in New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong all have detected melamine in White Rabbit Creamy Candies, a made-in-China sweet. CFIA has determined that White Rabbit has been imported into Canada and is available for sale in retail stores across the country.

CFIA has advised retailers to remove all White Rabbit candy from store shelves, and is working with importers to coordinate the product recall.
