Hey, it's SBaby. This is not funny, and it is not a joke either. I just came across a report by good ol' Mike Mozart concerning Halloween candy, that every parent needs to see. This is a bit after the fact, but I just found it myself. Thank God I'm such a net nerd, because this is very real and very serious.

Please watch these right away, because these videos are very likely to be taken down soon by some beaurecrat, and I'd wager very shortly.

And here's what I call the second part, even though they're technically two separate videos.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUB79WJ9ktQ

Now, my question is, has anyone here even read about this anywhere? Because this is the first I've heard of it, and I've looked around on the net. None of the manufacturers seem to think there is anything wrong, yet there is NO DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE IT EITHER WAY!

Do you think it's because of the elections, like Mike said? Or do you think there's some other reason?

And yes, I know you don't like people here talking about politics or linking youtube videos, but in this case, this is something people need to see. Because it's happening right now, and it could affect people that go to this very site. This isn't a joke, and it's not meant to be funny at all.

Now I copied and pasted this from the first site I posted it on, because I'm trying to get this out fast. It's very important, and from what Mike said, it sounds like the government is trying to cover it up for political reasons.

I was actually considering buying one of those today, thank-you for the warning.

Wow. That's terrible. I even saw those same candies in Target (I didn't buy them of course). This is actually very serious, like you said. I think this needs to be known, otherwise...Well...It won't be good!

I'm glad I didn't buy those Domo candies.
God, that's awful...

I'm afraid of eating candies now. :(

At first I was like "okay, creepy paranoid guy trying to scare us into not eating candy." Then I googled some of the stuff he was saying (namely the poisonings in China), and boy was I wrong. Yeah...probably not going to be eating this kind of thing this year. I also found out that this melamine stuff is in Lipton Green Tea and got myself nice and freaked, because I drink that stuff like crazy. I think it's only the powdered form, though, so I should be okay.

Wow, that was crazy. O.o

I was gonna watch the second video, but the link doesn't work, but that was just plain CRAZY!
I feel bad for all of those Chinese kids out there. ;-;

Hearing about being disabled, or dying was bad enough, I really didn't need to know that. σ_σ

Exactly. It's terrible. But what I'm wondering, is the China company doing this on purpose ?probably not but, since these candies were on shelves conveniently close to Halloween. I don't know. But this makes me almost scared to Trick or Treat this year!

Despite the moral wrongness of that statement, I have to agree with the trick or treating. Who knows whats actually in there.

My opinion is that they did it on purpose. I mean, they're probably just trying to make money, like the stupid Tobacco company! >:O
Don't go off topic talking about the tobacco company.
It just makes me sick! >.<

I heard of this just now, and it is so terrible! And I can't believe our government or the FDA isn't doing anything about this! Only because it is the Elections...give me a break! This is crisis and all they care about is the elections. :/ Thank goodness I been eating candy that is made in the USA. If I see a candy that is made in China, I am going to back away. I am not getting it.

Well looks like Halloween is going to be canceled to some kids. Everyone needs to know now! The kids are in danger. D:

I stopped trick or treating when I was given mouldy sweets or shouted at when I knocked.

Hey yeah, my teacher mentioned this at school today. I don't celebrate Halloween, never had, but I hope everyone else in school/town who goes trick or treating, or for whatever that involves candy really, knows and/or heard about this. And SBaby, just wondering, was that you in those vids?

He refers to Mike Mozart in third person, by name; and states that he found the video, thus no.

No, in actuality, people are misguided and treated unfairly. This is what drives extinction are cold blooded suits misinforming or decieving innocent people. What most do not see outside their world is the dark and false figures controlling their every move by inducing habits and illusions. Candy is one of the justified drugs since its major sugar content gets people addicted. What more of a reason to control the masses? Reduce the population by using every possible ingredient and sometimes an even more sinister thing, like melamine.

This is why people die from diabetes and other cancers early on in life. It's mainly what is in our food. A bunch of bad ingredients.

Well apparently it's been pulled from all other countries, so Australia is safe. I'm actually suprised that no independant tests have been done. Surely there would be some uni students that saw this and thought to test some products?

Hmm, I ate like twelve of those candies and I have a bunch of them still unopened and there's nothing wrong with me yet. I'll let you guys know if something happens, older people are affected to a lesser degree I'm guessing. I ate 12 of them yesterday, the skull ones. My sister and brother ate them too, though not as much as me. I have about 10 of them left, they were supposed to be for the trick or treaters but I couldn't help myself and since I bought them myself I just ate them. Seriously though, how come I hadn't heard of this? I heard about the Chinese milk problem but didn't think there would be anything wrong with candies or anything else. I doubt it's going to affect me, I think I should have felt something by now since it's been almost two days.

Okay, so I researched a little bit and it seems the FDA has at least tested some products because they have recalled three types of candy. They didn't recall any other candy and none of the three types of candy, well two types of candy and one type of cookie. The candy I ate and the other type Mike was showing in his video seem to be safe since they weren't recalled, at least I'm hoping they're safe.

Well, these toxins aren't as likely to affect adults as drastically as they would a child. Chances are that you wont see any real ill effects from them even if they were tainted.


I can understand his (the man in the video) concern but I think that he's overreacting a bit as there's just not much we can do at this point except wait and see if people get sick off of it or not. Since these toxins can linger it's possible that it may not even affect people until it's too late to link it to this year's run of Halloween candy.

Even so, it is outrageous! I shudder to think how many people ate that stuff.. i hope it doesn't badly affect anyone. It's still very bad that people have a chance catch it though.. loads of people didn't go trick - or treating because there was that risk! Which i find kinda strange due to the fact that they know which ones could be tainted and which ones aren't possibly tainted.

Ah well, better off sometimes to just stay at home with a bag of candy you bought at the store (The safe candy, not the stuff that's suspected of having melamine in it.) and enjoy that. My dad used to do that when there was any doubts about the safety of Halloween candy during my childhood.

Good lord. First pets die from tainted pet food, people are sickened by salmonella-infected peppers, and now America's trick-or-treaters are at risk of poisoned candy?
What is this world coming to?

November 1st, 2008, 08:04 AM
Hmm... thats no good... I would hate for that to happen to me but it's happening everywhere in the world now, resorting to the Chinese (no offense, you have good people there too) because they would do anything to save a little bit of cash. The list goes on and on with the dangerous chemicals too, Bindies (Bindos i think they are called now with their so called safe formula) and many young children toys too... *Sigh* when will people learn.

Why didn't I check this thread earlier. Thanks for the info, now I've got to give a quick call to my sister to make sure you didn't feed my niece or nephew any tainted candies.

Just eat it anyway, you'll probably be fine. If not, at least you miss school for a week or two.

My goodness, thats simply terrible. Thank god I decided not to eat any candies yesterday. I even saw those Domo candies at the Superstore here. Perhaps it was just luck that my parents refused to get it for me. I'll decide to keep a close eye on the ingredients list on the chocolates I buy in the future. Thanks for the warning, SBaby.
And I find it's even more cruel that this isn't in the news. People HAVE to know. There could be cases of children getting sick because of the lack of knowledge about this.
