What appeared to be metal fragments were found in Valentine's Day lollipops at an elementary school, and the product has been pulled from the shelves of thousands of stores across the country.

At least 20 apparently tainted lollipops, from a bag of Pokemon Valentine Cards and Pops, were found at Kathleen Elementary School in Lakeland.

For the past week, most major news outlets have been reporting this story. Pokemon.com has also added a link on their website to the following FDA's Press Release.
