Food recalls are issued when there is a health and safety problem regarding a product. In these circumstances, the company or supermarket who has issued the recall will advise customers to return the product to their nearest store. It will also be withdrawn from shelves.
Aldi is recalling one of its popular products because it may contain an ingredient not mentioned on the label.
The supermarket is withdrawing Gianni’s Milk Chocolate Lollies from shelves because they may contain almonds, which is not mentioned on the product’s packaging.
As a result of a packaging error, some packs have been incorrectly packed with Gianni’s Almond Lollies.
This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to almonds.
It said: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to almonds (nuts), do not eat it. Instead return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
The FSA also recommended contacting Aldi for more information, via https://customerservice.aldi.co.uk/contact.
Aldi also noted customers of the recall. The supermarket wrote in a notice: “As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling an isolated batch of Gianni’s Milk Chocolate lollies as the packs may contain Gianni’s Almond Lollies.
“Only a small number of our Midlands stores are affected. We apologise that this product did not meet our normal high standards and thank you for your co-operation.
“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk. When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.”
Aldi isn’t the only supermarket to recall a product this week. Lidl is also recalling one of its popular items – grated cheese – due to due to the potential presence of pieces of plastic.
Lidl advised customers “not to eat” the product “if you have bought it”. They said: “Instead, return it to a Lidl GB store for a full refund, with or without a receipt.”
The supermarket clarified that other Simply products and best-before dates are not affected by this recall and are safe to eat.
“Lidl GB wishes to apologise for any inconvenience caused. Any customers with queries or concerns can contact Customer Services on 0800 4441234 or [email protected],” the supermarket informed.
