FSA adds more beers added to recall
The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has expanded a recall of beer bottles after it emerged they may contain glass.

French beer brand, Brasserie de Saint-Omer, has had its products recalled from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Asda, Morrisons and The Co-op with the best before date up to and including 30 September 2013.

It is believed a number of bottles may contain pieces of glass due to a manufacturing fault.

Precautionary basis

The FSA said: Brasserie de Saint-Omer is recalling affected products on a precautionary basis from Tesco and other retailers.

“Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in stores, explaining to consumers what they should do if they have bought the affected products.

“If you have bought any of these beers, do not drink it but return to your nearest store for a full refund.”

It is unclear how many bottles have been affected by the recall and how the potential fault occurred.

Sainsbury’s started the recall last week with its Biere des Moulins Lager and St Cervois Premium Lager.

It has since been expanded to include Brasserie de Saint-Omer Panaché, 10x25cl.

The recall from Asda includes: Asda Bière de Luxe, 10x250ml, Asda French Lager, 10x250ml and Brasserie de Saint-Omer Shandy, 10x25cl.
