Packs of Carlsberg lager are being recalled in the UK market, because of fears of dislodged glass from the bottles' necks.

In a report today, the BBC says that as a precautionay measure bottles sold in eight packs from Iceland and Sommerfield stores since 1 September are being recalled. Carlsberg-Tetley said there was a slight risk glass particles may dislodge from the neck of the 275ml bottles.

Carslberg-Tetley chief executive Colin Povey said: "The safety of our consumers is of paramount importance and whilst this particular pack configuration accounts for only a tiny fraction of our bottled lager sales we are dedicated to maintaining the highest quality standards."

Other Carlberg products are not affected by the problem.
