The candy’s rolling ball can dislodge from the product into a child’s mouth

Twenty Four Six Foods of Brooklyn, N.Y., is recalling about 290,000 bottles of Happiness USA Liquid Rolling Candy.

The candy’s rolling ball can dislodge from the product into a child’s mouth, posing a choking hazard and risk of death.

The firm has received one report of the rolling ball dislodging, resulting in a seven-year-old child choking in New Jersey in July 2023.

The child underwent emergency surgery to successfully remove the rolling ball from his throat.

This recall involves all flavors of Happiness USA liquid rolling candy.

The candy comes in blue raspberry, strawberry and green apple flavors, consisting of about one fluid ounce of liquid candy.

Each roller ball candy contains a flavored liquid candy with a rolling ball applicator to apply onto the tongue.

The bottle is resealable with a twist on plastic cap. “Funtime Roller Ball Candy” is printed on the front.

“Happiness USA” branding and warning labels are printed on the back.

The candy, manufactured in China, was sold at Kosher market stores nationwide from January 2018, through July 2023, for about $2.

Consumers should immediately stop using the candy, take it away from children, and contact Twenty Four Six Foods for a full refund. Twenty Four Six Foods is contacting known purchasers directly.
