Mars Wrigley Confectionary has announced a voluntary recall of several of its candies due to reports of thin wires being found inside bags in recent weeks.
According to the company, a recall has been issued on specific varieties of Skittles gummies, Starburst gummies and Life Savers gummies.
Affected bags may have a “very fine metal wire” that is embedded in the candy themselves or loose in the bag.
No illnesses or injuries were reported, according to the company.
