Chocolate maker Mars has asked people to return some sweets after a customer in Germany found bits of plastic in their Snickers bar.

The company don't know for sure whether any other chocolate bars are affected but they're recalling the products just in case.

Chocolates have been recalled in 55 European countries, including the UK.

Product recalls like this are rare because the companies that make food have strict safety rules.

  • Variety Funsize - Party Mix (product code AV33T) with a best before date from 15/05/16 to 07/08/16
