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.

The Food Standards Agency has issued a warning to all customers not to eat the product.

A FSA spokesman said: "This product may contain small pieces of glass, which presents a safety risk.

"Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.

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