As consumer safety is our priority, we immediately informed the Food Standards Agency and are working with them and our customers to remove this small batch from point of sale where applicable as a precaution.

The company does not believe that any of its products have been affected.

– Managing Director Mike Grimwood

Mr Greenwood added consumer safety is of 'paramount importance' and it is regularly audited and tested to 'safeguard the quality of the products' baked at its factory in Bedwas.

Peter’s Food Service Ltd recalls several baked meat and vegetarian pasty products because they may contain glass fragments. Products include ASDA, LIDL and Peter’s brand products.
