The following Israeli health alert is from the theyeshivaworld.com on November 23, 2007 and confirmed by Osem.

The Osem food company has announced that it is recalling tens of thousands of bags of Bamba, Bissli, and Dubonim snacks from store shelves across Eretz Yisroel. According to multiple media reports, the snacks contain a prize necklace which was discovered to contain 3.5 times the permissible amount of lead in them. Customers who have already purchased the snacks and saved the necklaces are urged to throw the prizes out. The bags are labeled (in Hebrew) as containing a “toy necklace. Not intended for children under six.”
ed. note: None of these products were imported into the US. The snacks themselves are fine.

The revised following yoshon alert is from the Chicago Rabbinical Councl and from Rabbi Y. Herman, editor of the Chodosh/yoshon guide. on November 26, 2007.
