CanWest News Service (Saskatoon)
TORONTO -- Two men were, according to this story, arrested as they unloaded almost 40,000 stolen chocolate bars from a van in downtown Toronto Tuesday morning. And some of the bars may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The story says that police recovered eight skids of Hershey's chocolate bars which the company had voluntarily recalled last October and November.
The chocolate had been stolen from a nearby recycling depot.
About 12 bars are missing and police are concerned they "may have been reintroduced into the foodchain."
Two men, including a depot employee, have been charged with theft. Det. Sgt. John Babiar was cited as saying it is "possible," that the two suspects ate the missing bars.
Chocolate lovers are cautioned against consuming Hershey's chocolate bars with a time code stamp of between 6417 and 6455.
