A major Irish bakery is recalling its bread products as they fear there is a very small risk that some batches may contain small pieces of metal. 

Irish customers are being advised to check Johnston Mooney & O’Brien bread products with a Best Before Date of February 11 and to return them as soon as possible. 

According to The Anglo-Celt, the company is taking this precautionary measure as there is a slight chance that the bread might contain pieces of metal. 

In a statement the company said: "Only bread products with this exact best before date are impacted. No bun or roll products are affected.

"Any potentially affected packs have been removed from the supermarket shelves in co-operation with retailers and any that were in the distribution system have been recalled by the company.

"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."

If you have a batch of this in your house, it's best to return it.
