Parents are being notified in time for Halloween of a candy recall of 70 million liquid roller candies from two companies. The candies are recalled for being a potential choking hazard after a 7-year-old girl died while consuming the product. The candies — Cocco Candy Rolling Candy and various flavors of Slime Licker Sour Rolling Candy from Candy Dynamics — come in plastic bottles with a rolling ball that holds the liquid candy. The ball can detach from containers, creating a choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported. Anyone with the recalled products is advised to stop consuming them and take them away from children.
