Maker of Skoal, Copenhagen recalls chewing tobacco — CONSUMER ALERT

Complaints have been received from customers in Ohio, Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

A number of popular smokeless tobacco products were recalled Tuesday after consumers complained of finding sharp, metal objects inside the cans.

Due to the complaints, the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company (USSTC) voluntarily recalled the products of several of the major brands that sell nationwide. The majority of USSTP products were not affected including Copenhagen Fine Cut in a fiberboard can, Copenhagen Long Cut and Copenhagen Long Cut Wintergreen.

There have been no confirmed reports of injury or health concerns associated with the recall.

All of the products that have may have this issue were manufactured in USSTC's Franklin Park, IL facility and were distributed nationally. Altria spokesman Steve Callahan said "We appreciate our consumers' patience and loyalty while we work through this matter".

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

The cans can be returned for a refund. As part of the new standards set by the FDA the labels are required to contain expiration date, manufacturing code, and storage conditions if applicable. If successful, an estimated 15,200 life years would be gained in the nation as a result.
