    The company said that the precautionary recall affects some of its Galaxy milk chocolate bars, as well as some of its Minstrels products and Maltesers Teasers.

    The products affected have a best before date of either 6 May 2018 or 13 May 2018 and Mars said that only “a small number of these products” had been distributed in the UK and Ireland.

    “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 said in a statement.

    It said that it had “detected the possible presence of Salmonella from the ingredients used in making” some of its products and said that consumers who have bought them should not eat them but keep them, contact Mars’ consumer care team and arrange return and refund.

    A spokesperson said that Mars was “working closely with the relevant food safety authorities” as well as its customers “to ensure that the affected products are no longer available for purchase”.

    “No other brands or varieties of chocolate, pack formats, bar sizes or best before dates are affected,” the spokesperson added.

    Ah the wonders of the chocolate salmonella diet. Eat as much lovely chocolate as you want over the weekend then take a week off work as you crap yourself sill y . No weight gain.

    They SAY it's salmonella.. but who knows what they are putting in our food these days

    In the olden days when chocolate bars were "proper" sizes, I guess Salmonella might have done you harm.
    But, now they've reduced the size to promote a healthy diet and care for the nation's well being AKA ripping us off.
    It'll just make your poop a bit runny.
