Lion has pulled batches of its Lindauer Fraise due to the possibility there are pieces of glass in the bottles. 

The recall of the bubbly strawberry drink was announced on the Ministry of Primary Industry's website on Tuesday, citing a problem with the bottling equipment may have caused the issue.   

The affected bottles are the four-pack 200ml.  

The notice says the bottles with batch numbers  "L9164 PW374 20:27 to 20:39" and "L9165 PW374 07:41 to 07:58" should not be drunk.

It goes on to say: "There have been no reports of injury, however if you have consumed any of this product and have any concerns about your health, seek medical advice."

Customers who have bought batches should phone Lion on 0800 83 55 54 to arrange a full refund.

Other Lindauer products have not been affected. 

In a statement to Newshub Lion said they have not found any glass in bottles and recieved no consumer complaints.

"We undertook the recall as precaution. We found evidence of glass in a filling valve, so in the interest of consumer safety we made the decision to recall a small batch on the off-chance that any glass made its way into bottles."
