Nestle advised consumers not to eat the products and to return them for a refund
The Swiss food giant said at the weekend it had pulled the Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, Chocolate Fudge and Caramel bars, as well as the Kit Kat Collection Giant Eggs. Seven UK consumers found plastic in the products, Nestle said.
The affected products are predominantly sold in the UK, but also in Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, Philippines and Canada.
Nestle advised consumers not to eat the products and to return them for a refund in order to "avoid any risk whatsoever".
"The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for the company," the company said. "We sincerely apologise to our consumers for any inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall."
