Mars Factory Closed by Health Inspectors
On June 21st the Oak Park, IL Mars factory that makes M&Ms, Snickers, Milky Way & 3 Musketeers was warned by health inspectors after they found “‘infestation’ of fruit flies in the food production area as well as gaps in doors that might allow rodent access to the facility, officials said.”
(Talk about your Snickers Extreme!)
Yesterday the follow up inspection found that they not only didn’t fix those problems, but they also found mouse feces in the food production area.
Pirate Pearls and now Mouse Gifts! Hooray, more limited edition items!
UPDATE: The factory remains closed after another inspection and inspectors noted that Mars had not taken steps to prevent rodents from re-entering the plant by installing strips on the bottom of the doors. Read more at CBS2 Chicago.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
