More beers added to recall
Some bottles of Tesco Bière d'Or with 'best before' dates up to and including 30 September 2013 have been added to the recall list issued by the Food Standards Agency last week.
Brasserie de Saint-Omer, the company that manufacturers the beer, is recalling affected products on a precautionary basis because some bottles may contain small pieces of glass. The Food Standards Agency has issued an updated Product Recall Information Notice after several brands of beers were recalled by other supermarkets.
Today’s updated Product Recall Information Notice, which can be found at the link below, gives details of all the products involved in the recall.
Product being recalled
The product sold by Tesco added to the list is:
- Bottles of Tesco Bière d’Or (sold in 10x25cl packs)
- 'Best before' dates: All date tup to and including 30 September 2013
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.
About product recalls and withdrawals
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
You can get FSA alerts about product recalls and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link towards the bottom of this page to find out how.
