SANTA FE SPRINGS -- A Southern California candy company has recalled its line of light-up lollipops because they contain elevated levels of lead.

Kidsmania, Inc., based in Santa Fe Springs, said in a statement that the Flash Pop lollipops it received from Doublewoods Macao Commercial Offshore Limited contained lead levels as high as .60 parts per million. That's six times the level allowed by the California Department of Public Health.

The health department informed the company of the high lead levels on Wednesday.

The Flash Pop is a hard candy packaged in a 5-inch cylinder that lights up when a button is pressed.
