Bluebird is recalling batches of plastic-contaminated potato chip bags - for its second time in three months.

The company is recalling five batches of its Original Cut potato chips after it found some of the products may contain plastic pieces.

The latest incident follows an earlier one in April where some of its 18 multi-packs were thought to be contaminated with pieces of white plastic.

In the current recall the affected products, which all carry best before dates in August and July of this year, are sold in foil packaging ranging in size from 40 grams to the 324g 18 multi-pack.
