PRODUCT RECALL: Galaxy Cookie Crumble chocolate bars withdrawn from sale after concern some may contain piece of plastic

Shoppers are being warned that some Galaxy Cookie Crumble chocolate bars may contain a small piece of white plastic.

The Food Standards Agency has announced that Mars Chocolate UK is recalling 114g bars with a ‘best before’ end date of August 16, 2015 and batch codes PB21, PB22 and PB23 because they might contain a piece of plastic. No other Mars Chocolate UK products, this includes Galaxy products, are known to be affected.

An FSA spokesman said: “Mars Chocolate UK has taken the precautionary measure of recalling all bars that may be affected. Relevant wholesalers have been sent a notice to make their customers aware of the issue and if you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, please contact the Mars Consumer Care Team.”
