Waitrose is recalling jars of beetroot amid fears they could contain shards of broken glass.
Essential Waitrose Pickled Sweet Sliced Beetroot may be unsafe to eat and customers are being advised to return the product as soon as possible to one of the Ipswich stores.
It is the 340g jars with a best before date of September 2020 which pose the risk.
