Aldi Recalls Bakery Items Sold Nationwide for Undeclared Allergen

No illnesses have been reported to date.



The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that FGF Brands Inc. (FGF) of Toronto, Ontario, is recalling 11,830 cases of muffins made for Aldi. Packaged as "Aldi Bakeshop Chocolate Chip Muffins" (4 count), the product may contain undeclared walnuts, creating a possible serious or life-threatening allergic reaction in those with an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts. The muffins were distributed to Aldi markets nationwide. To date, no illnesses or adverse effects have been reported.

FGF initiated the recall after discovering that the muffins were packaged incorrectly. Production of the muffins has been suspended until the FDA and FGF are certain the problem has been corrected.
