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.
