The Kansas Department of Agriculture is cautioning consumers that might have purchased a certain kind of candy recently.

White Rabbit Candy has been recalled by its manufacturer, QFCO Inc. because it has possibly been contaminated with melamine.

This is the same chemical substance that contaminated chinese milk products and made thousands of children sick.

Since the recall last Friday, QFCO identified nine states where the candy was distributed.

Kansas was not one of them...however, it was confirmed that the candy was for sale in two ethnic markets this in Topeka and one in Kansas City.
