03 February 2017

Consumers have called the manufacturers and alerted them of the foreign objects that they found.

U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company, which makes Skoal and Copenhagen, recalled thousands of cans of tobacco on Wednesday.

The U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company said it has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of the recall and is working with federal authorities on the matter. According to the website, the recalled products were manufactured at the company's facility in Franklin Park.

Varieties of Skoal, Copenhagen, Cope and Husky brand smokeless tobacco are being recalled after some consumers spotted metal objects in their cans.

Distributed nationally, the products are popular alternative for the usual tobacco stick. A full list of the products recalled was listed on the FDA's website. A total of eight complaints were received. The complaints came in from Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

USSTC is asking wholesalers and retailers to remove the recalled products from their inventories and return the product to USSTC. The majority of USSTP products were not affected including Copenhagen Fine Cut in a fiberboard can, Copenhagen Long Cut and Copenhagen Long Cut Wintergreen.

Most of the company's cans are not affected by the recall.
