By ADRIAN SAINZ, Associated Press Writer

MIAMI - Small toys showing an airplane flying into the World Trade Center were packed inside some of more than 14,000 bags of candy sent to small groceries around the country before being recalled.

Lisy Corp., the wholesaler that distributed the candy, said Friday that the toys were purchased in bulk from a Miami-based import company.


The toys came in an assortment purchased sight unseen from L&M Import in Miami and included the toys depicting the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the twin towers, whistles and other small toys, said Luis Padron, Lisy's national sales manager. The invoice said the toy was a plastic swing set.


"I hate to blame the importer. He probably did not know what he was getting..."

The saddest part is that it's such a lame-ass toy to begin with. If I was a kid and got one, I'd strap a bomb to myself and blow up the Lisy Corporation.

Geee, they could at least make it a little interactive. Like a plane on a slingshot to shoot into the building and the top half breaks away or something. Damn half assed toymaker.

I don't think that was supposed to depict that, but just a sad coincidence after all.
