Batches of a Loyd Grossman pasta sauce are being pulled from shelves because of a risk that some jars might contain pieces of glass.
Customers with a jar of tomato and chilli sauce from the affected batches are being asked not to eat it and instead to contact the manufacturer, Premier Foods.
A statement on the Loyd Grossman products website said a small number of the jars "may contain pieces of glass, and are being recalled as a precautionary measure".
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued the food alert on behalf of Premier Foods and notices will be displayed at shops which sold the affected stock.
The recall affects batch codes 9316 and 9317 which have a best-before date of May 2011.
Jars can be returned to Premier Foods, Consumer Relations, Freepost PE866, Bridge Road, Long Sutton, Spalding, Lincolnshire, PE12 9BR for a full refund.
Queries should be addressed to the Premier Foods freephone consumer helpline on 0800 085 3959.
No other Loyd Grossman products are thought to be affected so the recall only affects the batch numbers quoted.
A Premier Foods spokesman said: "Issues of this type are very rare. We acted immediately once we became aware of this risk.
"This is confined to a single production run of one product.
"We apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused. No other Loyd Grossman Sauces, jar sizes or products are affected."
