In the video a man with the consumer protection bureau in Gaza says, "We destroyed Snickers and Mars chocolate after working with the products' importers and distributors. There was an order for them to be recalled from the market." Since the resurfacing of the video, false claims of the candy causing cancer has gone viral garnering 3,000 shares and over 90,000 views.
