Mars recall: The best before dates of all the UK chocolate bars affected

Customers are advised to contact Mars' customer care team

The UK Food Standards Agency has confirmed the best before dates of all the chocolate bars affected in a massive product recall by the American chocolate maker Mars.

Mars has recalled chocolate bars in 55 countries after a customer in Germany found bits of plastic in a Snickers bar in January.

All products made at the same time and at the same factory in the Netherlands have been recalled from Europe.

A Mars Netherlands spokesperson said: “We cannot be sure that this plastic was only in that particular Snickers. We do not want any products on the market that may not meet our quality requirements, so we decided to take them all back.”

The FSA has said that customers should avoid eating funsize Mars and Milky Way bars and boxes of Celebrations with the following package sizes and best before dates:

  • 250g bags of Mars Funsize (product code AV39F) with a best before date from 11/09/16 to 02/10/16
  • 227g bags of Milky Way Funsize (product code AV39J) with a best before date of 02/10/16
  • Variety Funsize - Family Favourites (product code AV33W) with a best before date from 29/05/16 to 14/08/16
