sell all your shares so the stock goes down so I can buy more at a better price, candy makes up almost zero of Reed's revenue, I need the stock down so I can load up so when Reed's announces record revenues, panic buying will ensue. thanks for your support.
cdph.ca.gov testes hundreds of foods/candies every year for lead. Many other candies were also found to have lead. Some ginger candies did not have lead when tested in prior years. Your bringing this to the board's attention is greatly appreciated.
Many candy products contain sugar or chocolate as principal ingredients. Sugar (sucrose) is made by a process, i.e., re-crystallization, which when carried out under good manufacturing practices, typically results in low parts per billion (ppb) (1 ppb is equivalent to 0.001 ppm) or undetectable lead levels in the final product. Consequently, FDA typically finds low parts per billion or undetectable levels of lead in sugar-based candies it analyzes in its monitoring activities. While the manufacture of chocolate does not involve a re-crystallization process, most finished milk chocolate products contain lead levels well below 0.1 ppm.
I don't seem to be able to post the link to it, but what you wrote seems to be an excerpt from the "Supporting Document for Recommended Maximum Level for Lead in Candy Likely To Be Consumed Frequently by Small Children" document from the FDA. If you search for that phrase you can reach the whole article.
