'Unsafe' naan bread recalled
Two leading supermarket chains have announced a nationwide recall of their naan bread brands over fears that they may be contaminated with glass.

Sainsbury's and Morrisons announced the precautionary measures after they were informed by the manufacturer of the potential safety risk.

The Food Standards Agency said the risk of glass being present in the bakery product, which is usually eaten with curry, was "very low" but advised customers to return the product for a refund.

The safety watchdog said the product was made for the supermarkets by UK-based supplier Patak's Breads Limited.

Three brands stocked by Sainsbury's have been recalled. These include the Taste the Difference plain, garlic and coriander ranges with a best before date of Dec 20th. Breads sold under the Peshawari Naan range between Dec 20th and Dec 23rd can also be returned.

Morrisons has recalled its ranges of plain naan breads, plain mini-naan breads and both two and four-pack garlic and coriander naan breads. The majority of the brands affected have a best-before date of between Dec 24th and Dec 27th.

The supplier of the product, Patak's, manufactures cooking sauces, curry pastes, chutneys, pickles and pappadums that are exported to 40 countries around the world. The company's website claims to have its products served in 75 per cent of Britain's 8,000 Indian restaurants.
