Sainsbury’s and Asda pulled ranges of own-brand biscuits and flapjacks today over fears of possible glass contamination.
Sainsbury’s recalled packets of Chocolate and Toffee Crisp Bites sold in in-store bakeries with a best-before date of June 22 2008.
Asda recalled own-brand Flapjack Mini Bites with a best-before date of May 26 2008.
A Sainsbury’s spokeswoman said the recall was a precautionary measure after some glass shattered near a machine used to make the products.
She said: “We are recalling this product to be cautious. We’ve had no reports of anyone finding any problems and there is no evidence of product contamination at this point.”
Asda said: “We have been informed by our supplier that there has been an incident in their factory, resulting in some glass breakage.
“No glass has been found in the flapjack. However, as a precautionary measure we have decided to withdraw the product from sale.”
Anyone who has bought either of the products can return them for a full refund.
