Mars recalls some Galaxy chocolate over salmonella fears
Mars is recalling some of its bars of Galaxy, Maltesers Teasers and bags of Minstrels due to the “potential presence of salmonella”.
The company says the products:
“We have detected the possible presence of Salmonella from the ingredients used in making some of our GALAXY® products, including Smooth Milk Chocolate bars, MINSTRELS® and COUNTERS® and TEASERS® bars, whilst carrying out our routine testing process.
A small number of these products have been distributed, and although we’ve had no related complaints, as a precaution we have made the decision to voluntarily recall the products potentially affected by this issue in order to ensure the safety and confidence of our consumers.”
