GREGGS is recalling vegetable bakes over fears they contain pieces of green glass.
The bakery chain’s affected pastries are sold exclusively at Iceland in packs of two.
The possible presence of glass naturally makes the bakes unsafe to eat.
The product recall applies to 310g packs with 2021 best before dates of either August 15, August 28, September 11, September 12 or September 26.
If you’ve bought either of the bakes, you should avoid eating them and instead return them to your nearest Iceland store for a full refund.
You don’t need to have your receipt in order to get your money back.
Your product recall rights
PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.
As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.
But it’s often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.
If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.
When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don’t there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.
If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.
They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.
In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.
You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.
Greggs said the recall only affects bakes sold in Iceland, and no other date or batch codes are affected.
The frozen products are sold for £2 per two-pack at the supermarket.
The Sun has asked Greggs where the glass has come from and how many packs are being recalled, so we’ll update this article once we hear back.
Greggs said in the recall notice on the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website: “We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

In August last year, Greggs recalled steak bakes sold in Iceland over fears they contained pieces of plastic.
It followed a similar recall of mini sausage rolls a year earlier.
