A full list of recalled products is available online.

Consumers of smokeless tobacco are shocked to find fragments of metal, including a sharp metal object, inside the cans of their favorite smoke, resulting to the recall of the products.

U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company, which makes Skoal and Copenhagen, recalled thousands of cans of tobacco on Wednesday. U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company posted a visual on its website to inform consumers how to check whether their product was affected.

The products were manufactured in the company's Franklin Park, Illinois, facility and shipped across the country.

There have been no confirmed reports of injury or health concerns associated with the recall.

Reports suggest that an executive order to roll back those sanctions could be placed on Trump's desk as soon as this weekend.

The issue came to light after eight consumers complained to the makers regarding foreign metal objects that were found in the cans. The complaints were received from Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin and OH, the release stated.

It appears this is the first time in recent history the company has recalled its products, according to the FDA's archives.

USSTC is now telling wholesalers and retailers to remove the recalled products from their inventories.

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.
