Recall announced for Skittles, Starburst, and Life Savers gummies

There may be thin strips of metal in the candy or in the bags.

Mars Wrigley recalled Starburst, Life Savers, and Skittles gummies. Mars Wrigley

Mars Wrigley Confectionery announced a voluntary recall Friday of certain flavors of Skittles, Starburst, and Life Savers gummies because of the possibility that there might be thin metal strands embedded in the gummies or loose in the bag.

The recall announcement said customers alerted the company to the problem, but that no illnesses have been reported so far.

Mars Wrigley said that the products were manufactured by a third party and distributed in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The affected products can be identified by the manufacturing code on the back of the package.

Mars Wrigley said it will work with stores to remove recalled products from shelves. If consumers believe they have purchased a recalled item, they should dispose of the product and not consume it.
