The company said the recall would affect only the domestic market and comes after it received two complaints from consumers.

The glass pieces were mixed with the food after a protection shield on a production line broke at its plant in Shiga, western Japan, the company said.

Calbee sells its brands in Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea and the United States.
