Skittles, Starbursts and Life Savers candies recalled over metal bits – New York Daily News

Some sweet treats may contain an extra – undesirable – ingredient.

Mars Wrigley has announced that it is recalling several types of Skittles, Starbursts and Life Savers candies due to metal contamination concerns.

The voluntary recall was announced by the company and then shared by the Food and Drug Administration late last week.

The recall involves 13 varieties of Skittles Gummies, Starburst Gummies and Life Savers Gummies between 3.5 ounces and 12 ounces that may have a thin metallic thread embedded in the gummies or loose in the bag.

“We have received consumer reports alerting us to this issue and are not aware of any illnesses to date,” Mars Wrigley Confectionary said.

“The products were manufactured by a third party and distributed in the United States, Canada and Mexico.”

The company said it was working with retail partners to remove the affected items from stores. Customers are encouraged to throw away their candies if called back.

The full list of recalled candies can be viewed on the FDA’s website.
