Important Safety Recall

Gummy Bait Tackle Box

Dear Valued L.L.Bean Customer,

Our records show you purchased or received the Gummy Bait Tackle Box (stock number 5AW69 or GHP3) sold by L.L.Bean from May 2008 through October 2008. (Note: Versions of this item sold after October 2008 (stock number HMT8 and 5BN96) are not affected by this recall.)

Our vendor, Wilbur's of Maine, has worked with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to issue this recall notice about the plastic tackle box possibly cracking over a period of time. This cracking process could release pieces of plastic into the candy inside the box. If plastic pieces are ingested injury could result.

If the candy has been consumed, please dispose of the plastic box. If the tackle box is cracked or broken, please dispose of the entire product immediately and contact L.L.Bean for an improved replacement or refund. If the box is not broken, please remove the candies and dispose of the box.
