Mars Wrigley has recalled Starburst, Life Savers and Skittles gummies. March Wrigley

Mars Wrigley Confectionery on Friday announced a voluntary recall of certain flavors of Skittles, Starburst and Life Savers gummies due to the possibility of thin metallic strands embedded in the gummies or loose in the bag.

The recall announcement says customers have alerted the company to the issue, but no illnesses have been reported so far.

Mars Wrigley said the products were manufactured by a third party and distributed in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Affected products can be identified by the manufacturing code on the back of the packaging.

Mars Wrigley said it will work with stores to remove the recalled products from shelves. If consumers believe they have purchased a recalled item, they should discard the product and not consume it.

Consumers with questions can contact the company by calling 1-800-651-2564.
