From the Truth-Beats-Fiction files comes news that the bubble gum called “Toxic Waste Short Circuits” has been recalled…because it, uh, contains toxic waste, and that can short circuit your health.
Federal authorities found that samples of the gum contained elevated levels of lead.
The voluntary recall of the product, which is imported from Pakistan, was announced March 26. It affects only the 3.2 oz. size of Toxic Waste Short Circuits Bubble Gum, Lot #15070SC12.
