In the recall notice from the Government of Canada, they say "Loblaw Companies Limited is recalling certain President's Choice brand and PC Black Label brand sauces from the marketplace due to the potential presence of glass pieces."
The recall also goes on to say that "this recall was triggered by the Company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products."

It's not yet known how pieces of glass got into these specific sauces or if more products could be at risk, but the CFIA is currently conducting an investigation.
