The Mars Wrigley company and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced a voluntary recall of gummy varieties of Skittles, Life Savers, and Starburst candies due to the potential presence of very thin metal pieces inside the bags.

The major recall follows reports of metal shards inside the bags or even in the gummy candy.

Eating the candy might lead to accidental injury to your mouth, throat or esophagus (the tube leading to your stomach).

The candy was manufactured by a third party and distributed in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
