The state’s food authority says 17 types of Coles, Mighty Soft, IGA and UB rolls with best before dates of October 2 are being pulled off the shelves over fears they may contain shards of metal from processing equipment.
Customers are advised against eating the rolls and can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The recall comes a day before the AFL and NRL grand final weekend begins, and follows a similar recall of Aldi rolls in July.
The goods were produced by Quality Bakers Australia, a brand owned by one of Australia’s biggest food companies, Goodman Fielder.
The manufacturer said the recall applies only to bread rolls with a Best Before Date of October 2 2016. The product has been available for sale in Woolworths, Coles, Independent Supermarkets and corner stores, in NSW/ACT only.
No other Goodman Fielder products are affected by the recall.
