Colombina Candy Co., which has an outpost in Des Plaines, is recalling its Megapops line of lollipops, which were found to contain metal flakes. (And Nestle , which has several Illinois-based facilities, is recalling a bunch of Raisinets because they may contain peanuts.) Trick or nontoxic treat, anyone?
