According to one article, the amount of lead found in one serving of the contaminated licorice is double the amount deemed safe for young children. Red Vines is asking customers to return any bags of licorice that might be affected to the place of purchase for a full refund. If you have young children who have consumed the licorice, or if you're pregnant and have consumed any, it's recommended that you see a doctor to make sure everything is okay.
