Mars recalls millions of bars in Germany and Netherlands

23 February 2016

Confectionary giant Mars has ordered a full recall of its chocolate bars in Germany and the Netherlands. 

The recall relates to products with best before dates from June this year to January 17. The recall was due to pieces of plastic found in products. 

The recall relates to Mars bars, Snickers, Celebrations and Milky Way. It is likely to cost the company hundreds of thousands in lost revenue.

Mars Inc wrote on their German website that consumers should return affected items. 

“We want to avoid having consumers who bought one of the (affected) products consume them,'” the company said.
