Smokeless tobacco sold nationwide recalled for possible metal fragments

The smokeless tobacco products listed here are affected by this recall and include Copenhagen, Husky and Skoal brands.

People said sharp foreign objects, including metal shards, were found in their chewing tobacco cans.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company have announced a voluntary recall of a number of smokeless tobacco products manufactured by USSTC. The recalled items were manufactured at USSTC's facility in Franklin Park, Ill., and distributed to stores across the United States. Consumers have called the manufacturers and alerted them of the foreign objects that they found.

None of the complaints included reports of injuries, Altria says in a statement. So far, the complaints were received in Texas, Indiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Ohio.

The recall was issued after eight complaints came in from people who had purchased the product. Consumers should contact USSTC at 1-866-201-9136 to return the product for a refund.

It appears this is the first time in recent history the company has recalled its products, according to the FDA's archives.

Representatives are working with retailers and wholesalers to remove all recalled products from shelves, according to the company.
