Smokeless Tobacco Recalled After Metal Fragments Found

The complaints were received from Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin and OH, the release stated.

Several smokeless tobacco products are being recalled after complaints of "foreign metal objects" found in cans.

The US Smokeless Tobacco Company, a unit of Altria Group Inc., has ordered a recall of their products nationwide, such as Cope, Copenhagen, Husky Brands and Skoal. Fortunately, none of the eight consumers who complained were injured by the metal fragments.

Cans not affected include Copenhagen Fine Cut in a fiberboard can, Copenhagen Long Cut in a fiberboard can and Copenhagen Long Cut Wintergreen in a plastic can. According to the website, the recalled products were manufactured at the company's facility in Franklin Park. The FDA says the object was visible in each case and there have been no reports of injury. "We also are working closely with federal authorities to investigate".

The recall said metal objects, including "sharp metal objects" were found in some cans of the company's smokeless tobacco products.

USSTC urged wholesalers and retailers to remove the affected products from their inventories.

Numerous recalled products were exclusively intended for use by overseas military.
