Several companies have recalled their liquid rolling candy products due to possible choking hazards, including one incident that led to a death.

Candy Dynamics has recalled 70 million units of their "Sour Rolling Candies," while Cocco Candy and KGR Distribution have recalled nearly 146,000 units

These recalls come after a 7-year-old girl in New York choked and died in April after the rolling ball from a Cocco Candy Rolling Candy product "dislodged and became trapped in her throat."

Candy Dynamics will give a full refund for any product that still has candy in it.
