Chocolate giant Mars on Tuesday ordered a massive recall of Mars and Snickers bars as well as Milky Way bars in Spain after plastic was found in a product.

The massive recall was issued across Europe, affecting bars in France, Britain, Belgium, Italy and Spain, after it had already withdrawn products from sale in Germany and the Netherlands.

Celebrations chocolates are also being recalled.

"Mars Chocolate is carrying out a voluntary recall of chocolate products of Mars, Snickers, Milky Way and Celebrations after plastic was found in a product," the company said in a statement issued in Germany.

Products with a best before date from June 19th 2016 to January 8th 2017 have been affected.

"With this recall, we would like to prevent consumers who have purchased one of the above-mentioned products from consuming it," said Mars.
