Grace Foods has issued a recall of a batch of its Caribbean Traditions Ground Black Pepper, because of what it says are isolated reports of particles of sand in the product.

But the company says there are no health concerns surrounding the presence of the sand particles.     

The affected product bears the code BB 29/Jan/17.

Grace says this code can be found on the upper ridged section of the bottle and is printed in black ink.

Consumers who have purchased bottles of the product bearing this code are being advised to stop using it and to return the bottles to the point of purchase, where the full cost of the product will be refunded.

Grace Foods and Services’ Chief Supply Chain Officer, Dianne Robinson says the recall is voluntary and affects no other codes of the Caribbean Traditions Ground Black Pepper.
