Aldi recalls hot dog buns due to metal shavings
Aldi has recalled a range of hot dog rolls after metal shavings were found inside some of the rolls.
The recall relates to its private label branded, ‘Baker’s Life Hot Dog Rolls 6 pack’ sold in its News South Wales and Australian Capital Territory stores. It only relates to rolls with the best before date of 14 July 2016.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) said food containing metal shavings may cause injury if eaten and consumers should not eat the rolls.
Baker’s Life Hot Dog Rolls 6 pack purchased from Aldi stores in NSW and the ACT with the best before date of 14 July 2016 can be returned to Aldi stores for a full refund.
Aldi apologises to customers
Aldi has apologised to its customers for any inconvenience and said it is committed to providing safe products of the highest quality.
“Aldi Australia takes product quality and safety very seriously and has therefore issued a recall of this product, in agreement with the supplier and the ACT and NSW Food Authority,” an Aldi spokesperson said.
“Aldi is conducting a close investigation with the supplier of the product and is collaborating with the food safety regulating authorities.”
Aldi is not only company where this issue has arisen. In June 2011, Ashai Beverages recalled a fruit juice after it became concerned it may include metal shavings.
