Koreans Crack Down on Genital Candy

SEOUL
– South Korea’s Food and Drug Administration on Thursday banned cheeky
St Valentine’s Day chocolates shaped like genitals or couples making
love.

The administration said 15 firms including an Internet shopping site were targeted
by the ban on lewd candy that officials say could give the wrong idea to sweet-toothed
youngesters.

"Ahead of the St. Valentine’s Day, we cracked down on 15 firms which have
produced or distributed illegal chocolate products," the administration
said in a statement.

"Some of the chocolate candies depict couples engaged in sexual intercourse
or were in the shape of the male genital," Park In-Won, an administration
official told AFP.
