Must read

MILAN – Mars Inc has recalled chocolate bars and other products in more than 50 countries, mainly in Europe, following the discovery of small pieces of plastic in a bar in Germany. All of the recalled products, which include Mars, Snickers and Milky Way bars, were manufactured at a Dutch factory in Veghel, a Mars spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

They were sold in European countries including Germany, France and Britain, and in certain countries in Asia.

The recall, in effect since Monday, follows a Jan. 8 complaint from a consumer in Germany, she said, who found red plastic in a Snickers bar and sent it back to the company.

All the products have an expiry date between June 19 2016 and January 8 2017, report press sources.

Roel Govers, spokesman for Mars in the Netherlands, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the recall affects 55 countries but didn’t immediately provide further details.
