Garlic bread shortage hits Australia

Factory hitch to blame for short supply

Bad news for Aussie garlic bread fans

Garlic bread lovers face a shortage of the Italian favourite after a product recall.

George Weston Foods, which supplies garlic bread to Pizza Hut, Domino’s, and some supermarkets, was forced to stop production when pieces of Teflon were found in a margarine blender filter.

They quickly identified batches that could have been contaminated and ordered a recall of any affected bread.

Domino’s has removed Traditional Garlic Bread from its menu until further notice.
