Sainsbury – Wholemeal Bread Warning

Full Refund on Suspect Loaves with 19 January Sale By Date

Sainsbury’s are asking customers to return any of their own brand Sliced Wholemeal Bread loaves dated January 19 as they fear some may contain pieces of metal.

The supermarket is recalling its 45p Sainsbury’s Wholemeal Bread Medium Sliced and Thick Sliced loaves. The 800 grm. bread with a sale by date 19 January  should be returned to any branch of their store and a full refund will be given.

“The presence of metal pieces makes the bread unsafe to eat and presents a risk to health”  claimed The Food Standards Agency
