Default Tainted Halloween Candy? (what the FDA doesn't want you to know)

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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3dbBQPIFf0

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.

This has been a fact for at least 10 years. My parents always used to make me check my candy first when I was younger.

I've always known this, but it still creeps me outt. And I live overseas so it's probably 10x more dangerous.

Ahh, screw it! *munches on suspiciouslly unwrapped candy*

What interests me is why did that guy have time to make a video? doesn't he have to be out working to pay for his house, Oh wait he doesn't he probably lives with his mum LOL, He has way to much free time:D,,, Plush Asian people can't handle milk as well as European and American people that is a fact.

But Domo is so yummy and chocolaty.

When the FDA says something, I'll believe it. I doubt that much candy in the USA is poisoned, and if there is an outbreak of Melamine poisoning, the FDA will become the next FEMA.

My parents always made me check my candy for weird things, cause I had a friend a long time ago who found a razorblade in one of his candies...

I don't trick or treat anymore though, so I guess I'm not concerned, except for my baby sister. D:

I can't believe it. I'm spreading the word, though it sounds familiar.

And by the way, does anyone know if Hershey's and Kit kats and such are poisoned? :P

Maybe I would care if it wasn't posted as a Youtube video by a creepy guy.

It's about this imported candy from china that contains melamine in it.

You know, didn't someone post something like this around a year ago?

Wow, it came from China? How incredibly shocking. What's their main export again? Oh yeah; it's poison... :/

Yeah, I was talking to my mom about it, as I saw something in the paper, that kids could trick or treat in Berlin from 5-7, then could get there candy checked by the Berlin Police. My mom said it was because there was and still is a lot of nuts out there. Like people would put razor blades inside apples etc.
