Salsa Recall

The maker of salsa sold at dollar stores around the nation are recalling their product after large chunks of glass were found in the jars.

Olam Tomato Processors Inc. announced the recall on Tuesday. The mild chunky salsa has a best buy date of June 2015 and October 2015.

The medium chunky salsa has a best buy date of July 2015.

A spokeswoman for the company says the glass pieces got into the salsa when jars were damaged during the manufacturing process.

The pieces were not detected by x-rays because their machines weren't calibrated to detect large glass pieces.

The Fresno-based company said there have been no reports of injury.
