Mars takes its chocolate bars off sale in Spain

CONFECTIONERY company Mars has withdrawn chocolate bars from Spain with immediate effect after a consumer found a chunk of plastic inside.

Snickers, Celebrations, Mars and Milky Way, where their sell-by dates are between June 19, 2016 and January 8, 2017 will be taken off the shelves, according to the US-based company's German branch.

They are also due to be recalled in the UK, Italy, Belgium, France, and possibly up to another 50 countries.

Those in Europe will be withdrawn first, since the affected chocolate bar had been manufactured in the Dutch factory in Veghel.

A press release issued through Netherlands-based news agency ANP says: “We want to avoid anyone who has purchased these products from consuming them.”

The decision to take the chocolate bars off the shelf has come directly from Mars Inc itself and was not under orders of any other consumer protection body.

A section on the website for the German headquarters allows customers to check in full detail which products are affected.
