The U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company (USSTC) has issued a voluntary recall of over two dozen of its smokeless tobacco products.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug administration, USSTC initiated the recall after receiving eight complaints of foreign metal objects, including sharp metal objects, found in some cans. In all of the cases, the consumer saw the object and there have been no reports of injuries. Complaints have been received from Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

The products were manufactured in USSTC's Franklin Park, Ill. facility and distributed nationally.
