Johnston Mooney and O’Brien has recalled some of its products because of a “very small risk” that some may contain pieces of metal.

The company announced the recall of all of its bread products with a Best Before Date February 11 2018 .

In a statement today, the company said the recall is “a precautionary measure”.

“There is a very small risk that some may contain small pieces of metal.  Only bread products with this exact best before date are impacted,” it said.

"No bun or roll products are affected,” it added.

Any potentially affected packs have already been removed from the supermarket shelves. The company has also already recalled any affected packs that were in the distribution system.

“Anyone in possession of a Johnston Mooney & O’Brien bread product with the Best Before Date 11th February 2018 may return the product to where it was bought for a full refund. Alternatively, they can send the empty packaging with their name and address for a full refund to:  Johnston Mooney & O’Brien 11 Jamestown Road, Finglas, Dublin 11,” the company said.

“The company apologises for any inconvenience caused by this recall but believes that it is the most appropriate course of action, however slight the risk might be to the consumer.”
