Mars products are imported into Gibraltar through both UK and Spanish distributors.

The Environmental Agency has contacted the three local importers of the products and they have all recalled all the affected products from sale. The recall is being undertaken as a precautionary measure in connection with products produced only in the Netherlands (Veghel) due to the possibility of plastic contamination. The recall of the products is as a result of a piece of plastic found in one of their products.

The Company has said that this is an isolated incident and that only varieties of chocolate, pack formats or bar sizes detailed below are affected.

The following are the brand, variety and batch codes of the affected products:-
