GCC markets unaffected by contaminated Mars chocolate products

The GCC markets are unaffected by the recent recall by chocolate maker Mars of certain batches of Galaxy, Maltesers Teasers and bags of Minstrels, the company has said.

Mars UK and Ireland, as a precautionary measure, voluntarily recalled a small amount of Galaxy Smooth Milk Chocolate bars, Galaxy Minstrel and Galaxy Counters and Teasers bars, a company spokesperson said.

“Mars UK and Ireland are working closely with the relevant food safety authorities and customers to ensure that the affected products are no longer available for purchase,” the company spokesperson said.

“This incident relates to products manufactured in the UK and sold in the UK and Ireland only. This incident does not impact products imported into the GCC by Mars.”
