Mars Chocolate has recalled batches of fun-size Mars and Milky Way bars and boxes of Celebrations according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

The recall which spans 55 countries is a precautionary measure as some chocolate manufactured in the Netherlands may contain pieces of plastic.

The Food Standards Agency website says:

‘Mars Chocolate UK has taken the precautionary step of recalling products produced in the Netherlands that possibly contain pieces of plastic. Other products are being recalled in Europe which have not been distributed via the Mars UK distribution route.’

The UK recall from consumers concerns only the products below, with the stated ‘best before’ dates, which were manufactured in the Netherlands and distributed in the UK.

  • Mars Fun Size (250g bag, best before date 11/9/16 – 2/10/16)
  • Milky Way Funsize (227g bag, best before date 2/10/16)
  • Variety Funsize (Family Favourites and Party Mix, best before date 29/5/16 – 14/8/16))
  • Snickers Miniature (2.5kg catering case, best before date 7/8/16 – 14/8/16)
  • Celebrations (388g and 245g boxes, best before date 8/5/16 – 28/8/16)
