Sliced mushroom punnets available at several Australian supermarkets have been recalled because they may contain large pieces of white plastic.
Costa Group – the country’s largest grower, pre-packer and marketer of fresh mushrooms – has recalled the 200g, 375g and 500g punnets of brown and white sliced mushrooms with a ‘best before’ date of July 19.
The recalled product is available in Coles, Woolworths, ALDI and independent supermarkets in Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Tasmania and the ACT.
It is sold under several brands including Woolworths, Coles, Karidale and Costa Mushrooms.
