Mars Wrigley Confectionary has announced a voluntary recall of several of its candies due to reports of thin metallic strands found inside bags in recent weeks.
According to the company, a recall has been issued on specific varieties of Skittles Gummies, Starburst Gummies and Life Savers Gummies.
The affected bags could have a “very thin metal thread” that is embedded in the candies themselves or loose in the bag.
No illnesses or injuries have been reported, according to the company.
