Candy makers Mars Wrigley Confectionery U.S, LLC is recalling certain varieties of SKITTLES® Gummies, STARBURST® Gummies, and LIFE SAVERS® Gummies because of the potential presence of a very thin metal strand embedded in the gummies or loose in the bag.
The company received reports from consumers alerting them to this matter and but they are not aware of any illnesses to date.
Products were manufactured by a third party and distributed in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
