Product Recall: Mars Bars and Snickers recalled over bits of plastic

24 February 2016

mars bar Mars have recalled a bunch of chocolate bars and other products, thanks to a bit of plastic being found in a Snickers bar. The recall is in place in 55 countries!

As well as Mars and Snickers, this also affects some Celebrations and Milky Way bars.

"We cannot be sure that this plastic was only in that particular Snickers," said a spokeswoman from Mars. "We do not want any products on the market that may not meet our quality requirements, so we decided to take them all back."

This is going to cost Mars a lot of money indeed.

The recall affected all Mars and Snickers products, Milky Way Minis and Miniatures, and in addition to that, Celebrations confectionery boxes with best-before dates ranging from June 19, 2016 to January 8, 2017.

If  you have bought one of the above products, don't eat it. Instead, please contact the Mars Consumer Care Team:
