For those of you about to buy halloween candy, there has been a recall on some chocolates due to China's contaminated milk.

British confectioner Cadbury has recalled 11 of its Chinese-made candy products.
The chemical melamine was first found in powdered infant formula, but has since been traced to dozens of other products.
Cadbury said the affected products were made at the company's plant in Beijing and distributed in Hong Kong, according to Hong Kong's Centre for Food Safety.

The recall was called a "precautionary step." "We appeal to the public to stop consuming the chocolate products concerned," a CFS spokesman said Monday.
"The Centre would test the related products. We are closely monitoring the situation."

The following products are included in the recall:

-- Cadbury Dark Chocette 45g
-- Cadbury Dark Chocette 80g
-- Cadbury Eclairs 180g
-- Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate 150g Pumpkin
-- Cadbury Dark Chocolate 40g
-- Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Bulk Pack 5kg
-- Cadbury Dark Chocolate Bulk Pack 5kg
-- Cadbury Dairy Milk Hazelnut Chocolate Bulk Pack 5kg
-- Cadbury Dairy Milk Cookies Chocolate Bulk Pack 5kg
-- Cadbury Hazelnut Praline Chocolate 312g (2008 Chinese New Year)
-- Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate 300g (2008 Chinese New Year)

Nearly 53,000 children in China have been sickened by the formula or
other products containing melamine. Four babies have died, and five Hong Kong children have suffered melamine-related illnesses. Dozens of countries have banned or recalled Chinese milk products.
