Aldi and Tesco product recall due to egg allergy risk and presence of plastic

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) announced yesterday that Aldi is recalling its Harvest Morn Crisp Rice cereal due to the presence of plastic.

It was found that the product contained pieces of plastic and so is not safe to eat.

The FSA confirmed that Aldi was asking customers to bring the cereal back to stores if they purchased it.

Aldi is also displaying point of sale notices in all its stores.

These notices tell customers why the product is being recalled and what to do if they have bought it.

In the notice to customers, Aldi said: “Customers are advised not to eat this product.

“Customers are asked to return this product to the nearest store, where a full refund will be given.”

Aldi added: “We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.”

The FSA issued advice, and said: “If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

The batch codes affected are 10470953, 10480953, and 10490953.

It is a 375g box and has a best before date of November 2021.

Additionally, Tesco issued a recall on its own brand tzatziki.

The product is considered unsafe to eat as it contains egg which is not mentioned on the label.

A packaging error means that some packs contain Sour Cream and Chive Dip.

This could be extremely dangerous if ingested by someone with an egg allergy or intolerance.

The tzatziki is 200g in weight and has a best before date of April 12 2021.
