Put down that bread roll. The NSW Food Authority has issued a recall on a number of bread roll products found in Coles, Woolworths, Metcash/IGA, corner stores and other food services outlets across NSW and the ACT due to fears that they may metal pieces. Here are all the brands that are being recalled.

The bread rolls originate from a single manufacturer, Quality Bakers Australia Pty Limited, which distributes to a large number of supermarkets.

According to the NSW Food Authority:

    Great job on the headline, not. Why include Coles and Woolworths in the headline if a) it isn't manufactured by them and b) they aren't the only ones that stock the products. It's even worse that Woolworths was named since the list doesn't even have an own brand product listed unlike Coles and IGA. I would have thought the headline would write itself when the company in question is "Quality Bakers" but obviously it didn't.

      Probably because a majority of the products in question needing recall will have been bought at Coles and Woolies, and most people wouldn't know the name 'Quality Bakers' even if they bought it regularly?
