Greggs is recalling the vegetable bakes it makes exclusively for Iceland over fears they may contain small pieces of green glass.

The possible presence of the contaminant makes them unsafe to eat, said the Food Standards Agency. The recall affects the 310g dual pack of savouries with a best before date of 15 August, 20 August, 11 September, 12 September and 26 September 2021.

It does not affect the savoury products sold in the bakery giant’s stores.

Greggs apologised for any inconvenience caused and added that “the safety of our food is of paramount importance”.

“We take all issues regarding the production of our food extremely seriously,” a Greggs spokesman said.

“We are recalling some batches of our vegetable bakes, due to possible small pieces of glass. This 2-pack product is exclusive to Iceland and therefore the recall is only applicable to products purchased from Iceland stores.”

Customers are advised not to eat the products but return them to the shop from which they were purchased for a full refund.

Point of sale notices are also being displayed in all Iceland stores.

Last August Greggs recalled certain batches of its two-pack frozen steak bakes, which are sold in Iceland, over concerns they contained plastic.
