SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California mother is raising safety concerns after saying she found an old, rusty razor blade in a bag of Jolly Rancher candy.

Amy Hu says she bought the bag of Crunch N Chew candy at Santa Clara Safeway, and after eating a couple of pieces pulled out a dull 3-inch blade, partially wrapped in white tape.

KGO-TV reports (http://bit.ly/MRmXjB) that candy maker Hershey has not issued a recall. The company issued a statement saying Hershey believes it was an isolated case and accidental.

The package was completely sealed and the wrapper indicates it was manufactured in Brazil. Hershey did not immediately return a phone message and email seeking details Friday.

Hu says she was offered three replacement bags of candy. But as the mother of 1-year-old and 5-week-old girls, she says she is not seeking compensation but rather assurance that the candy is safe.
