Liqui Fruit has had to recall a whole batch of red grape juice after three customers reported that they had found small pieces of glass inside the cans.
“The investigation as to the root cause and extent of the issue is under way,” a Pioneer Foods spokesperson said on Sunday.
“No-one has been hurt, as far as we are aware.”
Briefly.co.za learned that the company has recalled all the 330ml red grape juice cans as a safety precaution. Whenever a product is recalled it is done in cooperation with the National Consumer Commission (NCC).
Acting consumer commissioner Thezi Mabuza released a statement that the NCC had not yet received an official recall notice but would be keeping tabs on the recall process.
“We urge consumers who bought this product to stop consuming it immediately and return it to the retailer where it was purchased, for a full refund,” she said.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that an advert published by Clicks has gotten South Africans all worked up. The advert promoted a hair product which called African hair dry and damaged and referred to white people's hair as 'normal'.
Clicks have apologised for the advert but South Africans are still up in arms and a hashtag has been trending on social media.
The hashtag is demanding that #clicksmustfall. The EFF has added its voice to the rising tide of criticism against Clicks.
