Sainsbury's issues recall over metal contamination fears

19 January 2016

Sainsbury’s has issued a product recall of wholemeal bread over fears they could have been contaminated by metal fragments. 

Consumers who bought the 45p Sliced Wholemeal Bread are being asked to return them because they may be a risk to health. 

The recall relates to the medium sliced and thick sliced wholemeal bread, with the best before date of January 19. 

A statement by Sainsbury’s said: “Our supplier has made us aware of the possible presence of tiny metal pieces in a small number of the above products.

“As a precautionary measure, we are asking customers who have purchased this product with the best before date, to return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store, where they will receive a full refund.

“No other products or date codes are affected by this issue, and we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.”
