London brewer Fuller's is recalling a small number of bottled ales over fears that fragments of glass could appear inside.

The recall relates to some 330ml bottles of Golden Pride, Organic Honey Dew and London Pride.

The company cited an "isolated issue at our bottle manufacturer which could result in small fragments of glass appearing in the bottle" and stressed that 500ml bottles are not affected.

The affected bottles can be identified by their best before dates. They are:

* Golden Pride 330ml - 16/09/11

* Organic Honey Dew 330ml - 24/05/11, 30/06/11

* London Pride 330ml - 16/09/11, 01/10/11, 02/10/11, 03/10/11, 01/11/11

Anyone with queries can call 0800 288 9417.

John Roberts, managing director of the Fuller's Beer Company, said: "The safety of our consumers is our highest priority at Fuller's and as such, we have issued a product recall notice on a limited number of 330ml bottles of Golden Pride, Organic Honey Dew and London Pride.

"330ml bottles represent only a very small percentage of our bottled beers and we have issued a recall on a small proportion of these.

"The vast majority of our beer on sale in the UK, including the more widely available 500ml bottles, remains unaffected.

"We would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused and urge them to call the helpline should they find they have purchased a bottle from one of the batches listed above."
