Waitrose unveil food recall over safety fears – warning as product may contain glass
Food recalls aren’t all too common, but from time to time, they do happen. Yesterday, it was revealed that Waitrose & Partners is recalling its Essential Waitrose Pickled Sweet Sliced Beetroot. In a notice posted on the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website, it states that the reason for this is due to some jars potentially containing small pieces of glass. “The presence of glass makes this product unsafe to eat,” it reads.
