A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain product which is deemed unsuitable or unsafe for the consumer. The latest recall comes from Mars Wrigley who is recalling certain batches of M&M’s Crispy products.

Food recall statements were published by supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda.

Tesco said: “Mars Wrigley are recalling M&M’s Crispy products due to a genetically modified organism (GMO) in one of the ingredients. 

“Due to customer preference, GMOs aren’t used in Mars Wrigley products in Europe, which is the reason for this recall.”

Customers are warned not to eat the product and to arrange a return and refund.
