Supermarket giant Sainsbury's have asked customers not to eat its own brand sliced beetroot because of fears the jars may contain pieces of glass.

The Food Standards Agency says the presence of glass makes the product unsafe to eat and could present a safety risk.

No other Sainsbury’s products are known to be affected.

If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

Point-of-sale notices will also be displayed in all retail stores that are selling it.

The notice will explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tells them what to do if they have bought it.
