Aldi has issued an urgent recall of a popular American snack sold in all stores across Australia.
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.”
Aldi recalls prepared salad
The Reese's recall comes just weeks after 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.
Haagen-Dazs products removed from Woolies, Coles, IGA
An urgent recall was issued for a popular ice cream brand sold in Coles, Woolworths and IGA last week over contamination fears of a potentially toxic chemical.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) issued the warning on Thursday over Haagen-Dazs’ Vanilla 457ml and Häagen-Dazs Classic Collection Mini Cups 4 x 95mL over the potential presence of ethylene oxide.
