Customers in Ohio, Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin are the first ones to call and make the complaints.

U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company is recalling some of its Skoal, Copenhagen and Husky Brand products after reports of sharp metal objects found in cans. Fortunately, none of the eight consumers who complained were injured by the metal fragments. The smokeless tobacco recall does not include Copenhagen Snuff Custom, Copenhagen Fine Cut, Copenhagen Long Cut, Copenhagen Long Cut Wintergreen, Skoal Long Cut Custom Straight, and Skoal Snus Original.

The products at issue were manufactured exclusively in USSTC's plant in Franklin Park, Ill., and distributed nationally.

No injuries have been reported.
