Hackettstown, NJ — Mars Wrigley Confectionery US, LLC has issued a voluntary recall of specific varieties of Skittles, Startburst and Life Savers gummies because of the potential presence of very thin metal strands embedded in the gummies or loose in the bag.  The company says it has received reports from consumers alerting them to the contamination and it is not aware of any illnesses or injury to date.

The products being recalled were manufactured by a third party and distributed in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The products subject to the recall in the U.S. are described in a table released by the company. On the back of the package is a 10-digit manufacturing code; the first three digits in this code indicate implicated product as described in the table.

The company says it is working with retailers to remove recalled products from store shelves. Consumers who believe they have purchased a recalled item should dispose of the product and not consume it. Consumers with questions can contact the company by calling (800) 651 2564 or visiting www.mars.com/contact-us.
