KGR Distribution has issued a recall of over 145,000 candy products after an incident where a 7-year-old girl choked and died.

KGR Distribution has issued a recall for Cocco Candy Rolling Candy in various flavors. The issue is that the rolling ball that is part of the package can become dislodged and cause a choking hazard.
