Crispy M&M's

Crispy M&M pouches have been recalled by several major supermarkets

Crispy M&M's have been recalled by Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Morrisons after a genetically modified organism (GMO) was found in one of the ingredients.

The recall notice said: "Due to customer preference, GMOs aren't used in Mars Wrigley products in Europe, which is the reason for this recall.

"Mars Wrigley does not use GMOs in any of our products in Europe. Further, there is no GMO authorised for this ingredient under UK law and so the products must be recalled."
