      More women opting for preventive mastectomy - but should they be?

      Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn't carry a 100 percent guarantee, it's major surgery -- and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring.

The 10 oz. "fun size" bags were sold to Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote stores in the U.S. The company says it has received three complaints.

Nestle says the recall only applies to candy with the 02015748 production code and UPC number of 2800010255.

The company is calculating the number of bags affected. No other Nestle products are affected.

People with peanut allergies are advised not to eat the candy. Purchasers can call Nestle at 1-800-478-5670 for a refund. The company says not to return the candy to stores.
