Mars Recall in Germany Crashes Servers
Snickers Super Bowl 50 Ad

Mars announced a recall of its candy bars in Germany. The company should have upgraded their servers before the announcement.

Snickers, Milky Way, Mars and other candy bars are recalled in Germany, France and the Netherlands. There is the possibility that bars are contaminated with pieces of plastic. The affected production runs have expiration dates of June 19, 2016 to Jan. 8 2017.

The recall is likely the biggest in the company's history. While the recall is only affecting Germany, the official Mars websites are down including the US site. There is right now no way of concerned customers to find out more details about the recall.

The full list of affected Mars products is supposed to be available on the German site, but it is not accessible. DailyMail has a copy of the list of affected Mars products that includes also Celebrations and Minis.

Mars should have anticipated the traffic the recall is going to trigger. Mars products are very popular and I have a pack of Snickers in my office. I got lucky though. The expiration date is June 12, 2016. This is a week before the affected production runs.

Mars ran a Super Bowl commercial again for Snickers earlier this month. US consumers can though ignore this recall. The Snickers recall only is affecting European countries Germany, France and the Netherlands. Mars has local production facilities.
