The mother of two claims she was “extremely concerned” after she claimed to have found a piece of “broken glass” in an OXO stockpot.

Ceri Bruinsma was making spaghetti bolognese for her two children on Saturday, January 8, when she noticed what she believes was a sharp bit of glass in the stockpot.

Ms Bruinsma, from Walton claims she had only realised there was “glass” in the pot because she used a spoon to scoop out the stock.

OXO told the Liverpool Echo that their consumers’ safety was of the utmost importance, and had requested the collection of the item for analysis as quickly as possible.

The mum-of-two said: “I was extremely concerned and only noticed it because the glass was quite big.

 “I’m concerned someone else might have that problem and not notice.

“I was making a meal for the kids which makes it even more worrying.

“I scooped it out with a spoon because I was only using half of the pot in the bolognese – otherwise I would have just dropped the whole thing in and probably not have noticed.

“I noticed it and picked it out with my finger – it was a sharp bit of glass.

“My friend said it could have been plastic off the lid but it’s not. It’s definitely glass.

“I’ve got no idea how it got in there.

“I’m just lucky I was only using half this time and noticed it.”

Ms Bruinsma was making the food for her two children, who are aged eight and 10.

She claims “I’ve got two kids and my youngest has got autism and ADHD and is a very fussy eater so getting him to eat anything is an effort.

“I had the glass on my finger but I’d never have been able to show him as he’d never eat anything again if he saw.

“He’s got a fear of foods and that would put him off anything for life.”

A spokesperson for OXO said: “This product can crystallise, and dissolve again once cooked.

“However, consumer safety and quality are of the utmost importance to us, which is why we’ve requested the collection of the item from the consumer as soon as possible to allow us to analyse this.”
