Food and drink recalls are issued by companies, brands, and supermarkets when a product is unsafe to use. This means it may cause harm to certain individuals and is therefore withdrawn from shelves.

Sainsbury’s is the latest supermarket to recall a product due to health and safety fears.

The Highland Spring Ltd 750ml sparkling spring water is unsafe to drink because of a manufacturing fault.

There is a risk that the bottles may explode.

The bottles are made from glass.

Sainsbury’s, as well as a number of online retailers, sells the bottles.

They are available to buy on both Ocado and Amazon.

However, Highland Spring Ltd has issued a product recall warning customers not to consume the water if they have already bought the bottles.

In a statement, the company said: “Highland Spring Ltd is recalling their 750ml glass bottle Sparkling Spring Water on a precautionary basis because there have been a small number of reports that the bottle has exploded.”

It went on to detail its advice to customers, saying: “Please do not consume this product with the above details, place in a bag and dispose of it safely.

“A full refund will be given and no receipt is required.

“Please email: [email protected] or call 01764 660 500.”

Highland Spring Ltd added: “Highland Spring Group takes its responsibilities to consumers extremely seriously and always aims to ensure the highest possible standards of product safety.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this product recall may cause you.”

The product is 750ml in size and the use-by dates affected are May 2023, June 2023, and July 2023.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) also published the recall.

The organisation issues all food and drink recalls in the UK to inform customers of the potential health and safety risks.

It outlined its advice to consumers, saying: “If you have bought the above product, do not drink it.

“Please contact Highland Spring Ltd on [email protected] or call 01764 660 500 for a refund.

“Please avoid unnecessary handling of the product and do not return to the store, instead, safely dispose of the product.”

It added: “There is a risk that glass bottles may explode which may cause injury.”
