Mars Wrigley is voluntarily recalling several of its most popular candies due to the possible presence of thin metal strands embedded in the treats or loose in the packaging. The recalled candies include certain varieties of Skittles Gummies, Starburst Gummies, and Life Savers Gummies. The candies were distributed to retailers across the country, and were also distributed in Canada and Mexico.
