Aldi chips urgently recalled over plastic fears: 'Do not eat'

Aldi has urgently recalled a brand of potato chips over fears plastic pieces are present in the packet.

The NSW Food Authority says the Sprinters Crinkle Cut Multi Pack Chips have been available for sale at all Aldi stores.

The chips being recalled have a best before date of January 1, 2023.

"The recall is due to the potential presence of foreign matter (plastic pieces)," the recall notice states.

"Food products containing plastic pieces may cause injury if consumed.

"Consumers should not eat this product and should return it to any Aldi store for a full refund."

The flavours include Original Potato Crinkle Cut Chips, Salt & Vinegar Flavour Crinkle Cut Chips, Barbeque Flavour Crinkle Cut Chips, and Chicken Flavour Crinkle Cut Chips.

It comes after Aldi issued an urgent recall of a popular American snack sold in all stores across Australia in July.

The 120g bags of Reese’s Dipped Pretzels have been pulled from the shelves in all Aldi shops in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and the ACT.

“The recall is due to the presence of an undeclared allergen — peanuts,” the supermarket chain said in its recall alert.

“Any consumers who have a peanut allergy or intolerance may have a reaction if the product is consumed.”

The batch in question has a best-before date of February 2023.

Aldi is urging anyone who has purchased the product and has concerns to return it for a full refund.

“Consumers who have a peanut allergy or intolerance should not consume this product and should return it to any Aldi store for a refund of the purchase price,” the recall alert reads.

“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice. ALDI Stores takes product quality and safety seriously and we apologise for any inconvenience.”

Weeks earlier, Aldi recalled a prepared salad due to an initially undisclosed allergen that could have been harmful for people with cashew allergies.

In late June, Food Standards Australia and New Zealand issued an alert for The Fresh Salad Co Thai Coconut Wild Rice Prepared Salad 500g.

The product was sold at Aldi stores in NSW, the ACT, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.
