Mars Wrigley US and Canada issued a voluntary recall of numerous gummy candies Friday, saying there could be a thin metal strand inside the candies or loose in the bag. The gummies were distributed in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
The company is recalling certain varieties of Skittle Gummies, Starburst Gummies and Life Saver gummies after customer complaints. Mars Wrigley said in a statement it is not aware of any illnesses or injuries caused by the metal strands.

“We are working closely with our retail partners to remove any potentially impacted products from stores,” a spokesperson from Mars Wrigley Canada said in a statement to CNN Business.
Mars Wrigley did not specify how many units of candy were affected. The company said the products were manufactured by a third party.
