Confectioner Mars said Tuesday it was withdrawing its Mars and Snickers chocolate bars and Celebrations sweets from sale in several European countries.

Mars said it was recalling the items from Britain, Belgium, Italy and Spain, after it had already withdrawn products from sale in Germany and Netherlands.

"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 as it withdrew the chocolate in Germany.

Products with a best before date from June 19, 2016 to January 8, 2017 have been affected, reported The Local Germany.

The recall was made after a piece of plastic was found in Mars products.
