posted on 27/02/2016: 2975 views


As part of its commitment to safeguarding the public health, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, has published the list of banned products for trading or consumption manufactured by the Mars company of the Netherlands.

This came after the ministry received the notification from the European Commission and the announcement of the manufacturer on the precautionary and voluntary recall of the products.

An international recall of a range of chocolate bars has been announced by Mars because of fears that customers could choke on pieces of plastic. Mars announced the recall after a customer found a piece of red plastic in a Snickers bar bought in Germany on 8th January. After he complained to the company, the plastic was traced back to its factory in the southern Dutch town of Veghel, where it was determined that the piece came from a protective cover used in the manufacturing process.

Products affected include bars of Mars, Milky Way, Snickers, Celebrations and Mini Mix, according to a statement issued on Tuesday by the company. The recall was a "voluntary" one and was being done as a precautionary measure, Mars office in Dubai said.

The ministry and the local authorities concerned with food safety immediately began to recall these products and recommended that all consumers who have bought any of the products published in the list and manufactured in the Netherlands should not be consumed. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395292088419.html
