WJBF says Skittles, Starburst, and Life Savers are recalling their gummy candies because they may contain thin metal strands. The candy companies are recommending the gummies be thrown away.
A variety of gummies that were distributed across the nation have been recalled due to the potential presence of very thin metal strands, which may be embedded in the gummies or loose in the bags.
Mars Wrigley Confectionery U.S. LLC has issued a voluntary recall for specific varieties of Skittles Gummies, Starburst Gummies, and Life Savers Gummies. The recall was issued after the company received reports from consumers, notifying them of the potential hazard. No illnesses related to the products have been reported.
