SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company has issued a nationwide recall on several of its smokeless tobacco products after receiving complaints of sharp metal objects found in some cans.

The company said in a news release the complaints came in from Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

In each case, the sharp objects were spotted before use, so no consumer injuries have been reported, the company said.

The products, including major brands Copenhagen and Skoal, were manufactured at the company’s Franklin Park, IL facility and distributed nationwide.

The company said it has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of the recall and it’s working with federal authorities to fix the problem.
