French beer recall hits supermarkets

10 September, 2012

British supermarkets have been hit by product recalls on bottles of French beer after a safety scare.

The Food Standards Agency issued recall notices against a number of products from Brasserie St Omer over fears that some bottles could contain small pieces of glass because of a manufacturing fault at the brewery.

It said the recall was “precautionary”.

The recall affects both branded and own-label products as follows:

Aldi Brasserie Bière Blonde Lager, 8 x 25cl
