Firm Recalls Candy With 9/11 Attack Toy

These must have been created for a Middle Eastern audience:

911 Candy
MIAMI (AP) - Small toys showing an airplane flying into the World Trade Center were packed inside more than 14,000 bags of candy and sent to small groceries around the country before being recalled.

Lisy Corp., the wholesaler that distributed the candy, said Friday that the toys were purchased in bulk from a Miami-based import company.

The toys came in an assortment purchased sight unseen from L&M Import in Miami and included the toys depicting the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the twin towers, whistles and other small toys, said Luis Pedron, Lisy's national sales manager. The invoice said the toy was a plastic swing set.

I have been trying to find a phone # or email to let them know how I feel but have been unsuccessful. If anyone finds one, please post.

And now there are toys with Usama! Do people realize that he owns a company that makes the powdery stuff on gum? I don't remember what it is called, but talk about a biological disaster.. Perhaps these toys are the beacon..
