Supermarket recalls bread for risk of metal contaminant

Sainsbury’s has put out a recall for loaves of its bread after it was found that they could pose a health hazard.
The Food Standards Agency confirmed that small pieces of metal could be present in a batch of loaves produced by the supermarket.
Sainsburys own brand 45p Wholemeal Bread Medium Sliced and Thick Sliced 800g loaves, with a ‘use by’ date of the 19th of January, are the products affected, and should be returned to the store.
Returned products will be given a full refund.
A spokesman for the company said: “We have been made 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, were 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.”
Any bad publicity for the big four stores could prove disastrous, as the public still seem to be drifting away and heading to the German discounters for the better bargains. This will surely only serve to push people away faster.
