Chocolate maker Mars has recalled its products from 55 countries, including the UK, after plastic was found in one of its products.

The news came to light after the Dutch food safety authority posted information from Mars on its website, saying a piece of plastic had been found in a product that could lead to choking. It listed affected products as: Mars, Milky Way, Snickers, Celebrations, and Mini Mix which had been made in the Netherlands for global distribution.
