The Osem food company has announced that it is recalling tens of thousands of bags of Bamba, Bissli, and Dubonim snacks from store shelves across Israel.
According to multiple media reports, the snacks containa prize necklace which was discovered to contain 3.5 times the permissible amount of lead in them.
Customers who have already purchased the snacks and saved the necklaces are urged to throw the prizes out. The bags are labeled (in Hebrew) as containing a "toy necklace. Not intended for children under six."
"I don't think a recall is warranted, but I'm doing it because I was instructed to," Osem CEO Aviezer Kaplan told Haaretz. "All the experts we checked with say there is no danger to public health."
The recall was ordered by the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry.
