Sainsbury’s beetroot ‘ may contain glass


Sainsbury’s has recalled one of its beet products on fears that it may contain small pieces of glass.

The Food Standards Agency has warned customers who have bought a jar of 340g sainsbury’s sliced beetroot – item code 7860491 – not to consume the content.

Sainsbury’s has offered a refund to anyone who purchased the product, which can be returned to any branch.

The supermarket chain said the move was a “precautionary measure” after the glass has been found in a batch.

A FSA statement read: “The product may contain small pieces of glass that could pose a risk to security.”

Sainsbury’s has apologised to its customers for any “inconvenience”.

“As a precautionary measure, we are asking all customers who have purchased this product with the above batch code, not to consume and return it to their nearest sainsbury’s store where they will receive a full refund.

“No other products or batch codes are affected by this issue, and we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.”
