Erkki Railo, president of the Chicago-based Leaf Inc., said the change of heart came after a local group helped find a new factory and workers agreed to job reductions and temporary wage concessions of 95 cents an hour.

Hershey to Buy Leaf Candy From Finnish Parent: The deal for Leaf Inc.'s North American candy business is valued at $440 million in cash and royalties. The acquisition would help Hershey Foods Corp. expand beyond chocolates with such goodies as Jolly Rancher and Good & Plenty. In return, Leaf's parent company, Finnish food maker Huhtamaki Oy, would buy Hershey's European candy-making operations for $110 million. Hershey, though, would still sell some of its candies in Europe.

One person has died and 87 are sick with salmonella food poisoning from tainted cheese in the Canadian province of Quebec, health officials said. The outbreak comes amid consumer alarm over a massive recall by Maple Leaf Foods Inc. of ready-to-eat meats. An outbreak of listeriosis food poisoning from deli meats produced at the company's Toronto plant has been linked to the deaths of 15 people. The salmonella outbreak, which officials said had no connection to the Maple Leaf case, involves three brands of cheese manufactured by Fromages La Chaudiere Inc., a small family-run business that sells in Quebec only.

We've seen sugarless gums and mints before, but XyliFresh is the only one sweetened predominantly with a low-calorie sweetener called xylitol (found in many plants and also produced by the human body during normal metabolism). Not only is it actually sweet, there are studies showing it reduces plaque buildup, neutralizes plaque acids and may promote remineralization, which can reverse early stages of tooth decay.

Canadian public health officials said that as many as 12 deaths might be linked to an outbreak of food poisoning, and the number of cases could rise. Eleven of the fatalities from listeriosis occurred in Ontario and one was in British Columbia, officials said. The fatalities are among 26 cases of the disease from the same strain of listeria that was identified at a Toronto plant run by Maple Leaf Foods Inc. The company, Canada's largest food processor, expanded a food recall Sunday to include all meat products made at the Toronto plant, which is scheduled to reopen today.

Call it the Missing Milk Duds Caper. Or how about the Case of the Withheld Whoppers? In the second such crackdown in barely a week, the Ventura County district attorney's office filed suit Thursday to ensure that consumers get what they pay for: specifically, more candy than air in cartons of Milk Duds, and boxes of Whoppers worthy of the name. Faster than you could chew one of the offending confections, the case was resolved with an agreement by Leaf Inc.

As the economy continues to slump, life has gone sour for many businesses. But merchants gathering at a convention of candy wholesalers find this Valentine's Day financially sweet. Candy and snack-food merchants from across the country met at the kickoff of the three-day event Thursday at the San Diego Convention Center mainly to talk shop, network and try to market their products. But another reason was to celebrate a boom in the $14-billion-a-year confection business.
