Mars Food is taking the precautionary step to voluntarily recall select production batches of Uncle Ben’s Brown Basmati 250g ready to heat microwavable rice pouches, due to the possibility of the presence of glass.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the company said, "We are working with retailers to have the product removed from store shelves. We would like to advise retailers and consumers to check any packs of Uncle Ben’s Brown Basmati 250g ready to heat rice pouches purchased featuring the best before codes listed below. This product should not be consumed."
The company said that this is an isolated incident and that no other Uncle Ben’s products have been affected or are included in the recall and are safe to consume.
"At Mars Food, our number one priority is food safety. We are deeply committed to keeping our food safe and take situations such as these extremely seriously. We apologize for any inconvenience," they added.
