Several smokeless tobacco products are being recalled after complaints of "foreign metal objects" found in cans.

Some varieties of Skoal, Copenhagen, Cope and Husky brand smokeless tobacco are being voluntarily recalled amid complaints of metal objects, some of them sharp, being spotted in cans.

According to the company, the unaffected items include the Copenhagen Fine Cut in a fiberboard can, Copenhagen Long Cut in a fiberboard can and Copenhagen Long Cut Wintergreen in a plastic can. No reports of injury have been reported.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date: Reports Eye March 29 Launch
Samsung also may have taken over the race on performance as the Galaxy S8 will feature the new SnapDragon 835 chipsets. Two capacitive keys flanking an elongated home button have always been a staple of Samsung phone and tablet design.

The FDA announced earlier this month that the carcinogen levels in the smokeless tobacco product called N-nitrosonornicotine (NNN) should be limited or reduced. Altria spokesman Steve Callahan said "We appreciate our consumers' patience and loyalty while we work through this matter".

A full list of the recalled products is on the FDA's website.

Any consumer who has any of the recalled product should not open or use it, but instead, contact USSTC at 1-866-201-9136 to return the product for a refund. If successful, an estimated 15,200 life years would be gained in the nation as a result.
