A fragment of glass has been found in a Falun sausage bought from a store in Karlsborg in southern Sweden. The incident has been reported to police, according to TV4 Skaraborg.

The sausage was bought on March 20th but it was first when the sausage was about to be eaten that the glass fragment was discovered. The sausage has now been confiscated by police.

A further police report was made on Wednesday that glass had been found in chicken drumsticks bought in a store in Falköping in southern Sweden.

The Local reported on Wednesday that several commercial kitchens had removed chicken from their menus.

County hospitals in Halmstad and Varberg have now decided to join Malmö, Lund and Stockholm South hospitals in finding alternative meal options.

"It feels safer to not serve chicken at the moment," Britt Hedström at Varberg hospital said to TV 4 Halland's news program.

Reports of glass fragments in chicken products began to emerge in Sweden on March 20th. The latest reports bring the number of cases to 19, with 14 of the cases traced to Kronfågel's factory in Valla.
