American chocolate giant Mars Tuesday ordered a massive international recall of Mars and Snickers bars made at its Dutch factory after a piece of plastic found in one snack was traced back to the site.The move comes after a customer found a red piece of plastic in a Snickers bar bought on Jan. 8 in Germany.After he complained to Mars, the plastic was traced back to Veghel which determined that it came from a protective cover used in the plant's manufacturing process.It is the first time that Mars has had to recall products made at its Veghel factory, which opened in 1963 and employs some 1,200 people.Mars said it was recalling the items from Britain, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain, after it already withdrew products from sale in Germany and Netherlands.
