Skittles: Lawsuit claiming sweets ‘unfit for human consumption’ filed against Mars Inc

A lawsuit claiming that Skittles are “unfit for human consumption” has been filed against candy giant Mars Inc.

It is being alleged that the sweets contain “heightened levels” of colour additive titanium dioxide (TiO2), a “known toxin,” according to this Veuer clip.

A Mars Inc spokesperson said that the use of the compound complies with FDA recommendations.
