of Indianapolis expanded its recall to include all Toxic Waste brand Nuclear Sludge products after testing showed some of it had lead in levels higher than allowed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA said so far no one has reported getting sick from eating the super sour candy, which is now no longer sold in the U.S.

Candy Dynamics said it tested some of its smaller-sized candy and found some of it had lead levels between 0.101 parts per million to 0.311 parts per million -- the FDA allows for 0.1 parts per million. Lead can be toxic to small children and cause brain damage. Lead poisoning can also lead to health issues in pregnant women.
