Japan Calbee crisps 'contain glass'

TOKYO: Snack food maker Calbee Inc. said Wednesday it was recalling 5.3 million bags of potato crisps in Japan after fragments of glass were found.

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.
