US Smokeless Tobacco Company Voluntarily Recalls Certain Smokeless Tobacco Products

Several major brands of smokeless tobacco sold nationwide are being recalled after customers complained to the manufacturer about finding metal fragments in the product. The complaints were received from Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin and OH, the release stated.

US Smokeless Tobacco Co., part of Altria, is voluntarily recalling some smokeless tobacco products after consumer complaints of foreign metal objects in cans.

The agency said all the recalled products were produced at U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company's facility in Franklin Park, Illinois, the Associated Press reported.

The recall was voluntary by USSTC.

Most of the company's cans are not affected by the recall. There have been no reports of injuries.

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

USSTC is instructing wholesalers and retailers to segregate the recalled products from their inventories. Consumers should contact USSTC at 1-866-201-9136 to return the product for a refund.
