Irish company issue bread recall due to risk of metal pieces

A bread recall has been issued for Johnston Mooney & O'Brien products.

The notice was issued for all products with a best before date of February 11, 2018, due to a "very small risk" that some may have small pieces of metal.


A spokesperson for the company said that the recall had been issued as a precautionary measure.

They confirmed that it was only bread products with that date that had been affected, and no bun or roll products were impacted.

Any of the potentially affected packs have been removed from supermarket shelves, while any that were in the distribution system have been recalled by the company.

Customers who may have purchased one of these products can return it to where it was bought and get a full refund.

A statement from the spokesperson continued:

"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 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."
