A 12-year-old girl says she found a naughty adult message on a piece of kids Valentine's Day candy.

"I thought it was kind of shocking," said the girl, Ciara Bush. "I was reading them, and I brought it to my mom after I saw it."

Her parents were stunned at what they saw.

"Nice T---," said Derrick Deanda, reading the reference to a woman's breasts printed on the small piece of candy.

The candy came from a pack of conversation hearts Deanda said he bought at a discount store in North Highlands, Calif.

He said he was shocked when his daughter discovered the naughty message after she opened the bag of candy.

He e-mailed the candy maker and said he got a quick response. A phone call came the next day asking him to mail the candy and the entire bag back to the company so it could investigate.

While he was shocked, Deanda said he doesn’t have any plans to sue. He just wanted to warn other parents.

"I wanted to bring it to everybody's attention," Deanda said. "Watch what you get."

The manager of the store where the candy was bought told KCRA 3 she has not had any other complaints about that candy brand.
