Mars recalls candy bars in 55 countries over plastic
Piece of plastic found in a product could lead to choking, Dutch food safety authority says.
All of the recalled products, which include Mars, Snickers and Milky Way bars, were manufactured at a Dutch factory in Veghel, according to a Mars spokeswoman.
Because Mars cannot guarantee there is no plastic in other products made at the Veghel factory, it is recalling everything made there during a specific period.
It's unclear if the recall includes products sold in Canada.
Mars Netherlands said it was working closely with the Dutch food safety authority on the matter, according to the statement.
The privately held company earlier said it had recalled products in Germany.
It said the recall affected all Mars and Snickers products, Milky Way Minis and Miniatures as well as certain kinds of Celebrations confectionery boxes with best-before dates ranging from June 19, 2016 to Jan. 8, 2017.
