Depending on the product, customers are advised to return them for a full refund, such as with the Greggs pasty, or even to handle the item with care as in the case of Irn-Bru glass products.

This is a word of warning for people with a sulphur dioxide allergy.
“Lidl GB is recalling Starovice Czech Lager 5.0% because it contains sulphur dioxide which is not mentioned on the label,” the alert reads.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide and/or sulphites.”
The FSA says AG Barr is recalling IRN-BRU Regular and IRN-BRU 1901 750ml glass bottles on a precautionary basis due to a “small number of reports that the bottle caps pop off unexpectedly”.
Customers are advised to open the bottles with care to release the pressure.
“Bottles should be handled carefully and pointed away from the body at arm’s length when opening,” says the warning.
“Consumers should then contact AG Barr at [email protected].”
