(Grand Rapids, Michigan-AP) -- An Oklahoma company that supplied plastic Easter eggs filled with stale candy is still receiving complaint calls a week after the owner of the company issued a recall.

Oklahoma City-based Diamond Vending and Supply owner John Adams denies he intentionally sold moldy candy.

He says he sent recall notices to customers more than a week before Easter advising them that the eggs contained stale candy.

Kentwood, Michigan, had ordered some of the eggs, and Parks Director Charlie Ziesemer says the city never received a notice. Adams says he couldn't find a purchase order from the city.

Some of the eggs parents and kids found at an Easter egg hunt in Kentwood contained moldy candy, Boy Scout badges, rusty fasteners and sew-on patches.

Kentwood officials are seeking a refund.
