According to the FSA, Tereos UK has recalled certain Granulated Sugar products due to the possible presence of small Metal Fragments in some packs sold by Iceland, Poundland and Sainsbury’s.

In general, if glass or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Granulated Sugar products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Sugar to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
