Update:

(WWTI) – A variety of erasers that were distributed across the country have been recalled due to the potential presence of very fine metal strands, which may be embedded in the erasers or loose in the bags.

Mars Wrigley Confectionery US LLC has issued a voluntary recall for specific varieties of Skittles Gummies, Starburst Gummies and Life Savers Gummies. The recall was issued after the company received reports from consumers advising them of the potential danger. No product-related illnesses have been reported.

The same gummies have been distributed in Canada and Mexico, according to a recall alert issued by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Information specific to the recalled products is listed in the table below.
