Mars Wrigley recalls some M&Ms CRISPY products in the UK

 

Mars Wrigley is recalling some of its M&Ms Crispy products due to the presence of a genetically modified organism (GMO) in an ingredient produced by a supplier.   

As we put consumers’ preferences at the heart of everything we do, Mars Wrigley does not use GMOs in any of our products in Europe.  Further, there is no GMO authorised for this ingredient under UK law and so the products must be recalled.     

We have undertaken a thorough tracing exercise to determine the locations of the affected products.  We can also confirm we have halted all production using the affected ingredient and have placed a hold on all products made with the impacted batch.    

We will work with the supplier who provided the ingredient to ensure thorough checks are in place to ensure the issue does not recur.   

No other Mars Wrigley brands, products, batch codes or best before dates are affected.
