Mars is recalling some Galaxy, Minstrels and Maltesers Teasers products over fears they could contain salmonella.

Galaxy milk chocolate bars, Maltesers Teasers and some Minstrels products are included according to The Independent.

Products affected have a best before date of May 6 2018 or May 13 2018.

However, the confectionary company claims that only “a small number of these products” are being sold in the UK and Ireland.

Mars said in a statement: “Although we've had no related complaints, as a precaution we have made the decision to voluntarily recall the products potentially affected by this issue in order to ensure the safety and confidence of our consumers."

The company has advised customers who have any of the potentially affected products not to consume them, but to keep hold of them and contact Mars’ consumer care team.

A return and refund can then be arranged for customers.

A spokesperson for the company has said it is working with food safety authorities to ensure products affected by the issue are no longer available to buy.
