Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has recalled a batch of cereal which it fears could contain small pieces of plastic.

The chain is recalling its 1kg box of own-brand Wholegrain Bran Flakes with a best before date of August 2016 due to a production fault which has left some containing small pieces of plastic.

The official recall notice reads: “It has been brought to our attention that a limited number of packets may contain small pieces of plastic.

“As a precautionary measure, we are asking all customers who have bought this product to return it to the nearest Sainsbury’s store, where they will receive a full refund.”

No other products or date codes are affected by this issue and Sainsbury’s apologies for the inconvenience caused to shoppers.
