Originally drafted by Assemblyman Juan Vargas before being revived by Assembly Members Marco Antonio Firebaugh, John Longville and Lou Correra,  Assembly Bill 2451 would have required the state to test candies with chili or tamarind fruit, most of which are coming from Mexico. The bill provided that sweets containing more than 0.2 parts per million of lead would be removed from store shelves.
