London, Feb 3 (ANI): A 31-year-old Indonesian man lost six teeth when the cigarette he was smoking exploded in his mouth.

However, PT Nojorono Tobacco Indonesia, the maker of the cigarette, has offered victim Andi Susanto 335 pounds for his treatment.

"The company's officials have talked to my family and we agreed to settle it amicably, as an out-of-court settlement," the Telegraph quoted Susanto as telling the Jakarta Post.

"They will pay all the medical expenses," he added.

Susanto, who's a security guard, revealed that the Clas Mild cigarette had exploded in his mouth while he was riding his motorcycle.

A spokesman for Clas Mild said there were no plans for a recall.

"We are communicating with the police and still waiting on the forensic laboratory tests," Iwan Sulistyo, the brand's marketing chief, told the Jakarta Globe.

"We do not put any strange materials in the cigarettes, so we think that this is a weird case. This is the first time for us," he added. (ANI)
