Mars has said it is recalling a number of chocolates in the UK after a piece of plastic was found in one of its products.

The chocolates include: Celebrations, Mars Funsize, Milky Way Funsize and Snickers Miniatures.

The UK is one of 55 countries affected by the recall, which impacts products produced early this year in the Netherlands.

The company said it was taking the "precautionary step" following an "isolated incident".

This is an isolated incident.

No other varieties of chocolate, pack formats or bar sizes are affected in the UK and no other best before dates or products manufactured at any other location are impacted.
