This morning NBC News reported that Red Vines has issued a recall on their one-pound bags of Black Licorice Twists with the "Best Before Date" of February 4, 2013 due to high lead content. The recall is luckily limited to that specific batch, so continue eating your proper red Red Vines with confidence. They're way better than the black licorice variety anyway.
