A range of chocolate cupcakes is being recalled in eight US states because they may contain tiny fragments of metal mesh wire.

People are being told not to eat the multi-pack Tastykake products, which were on sale in over 500 Walmart shops.

The company which makes the cakes, Flowers Foods – one of the biggest US bakery brands – says it decided to recall the products after a vendor warned they could be contaminated.

No injuries have been reported.

The multi-pack cupcakes were being pulled as a “precautionary measure”, the manufacturer said in a statement on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website.

It said people who had bought the cakes should discard them or return them for a refund.

They include chocolate cupcakes, creme-filled chocolate cupcakes, buttercreme iced creme-filled chocolate cupcakes, and individually sold packages. The products have use-by dates from 14 December to 21 December.
