ALDI has sounded the alarm after one if its products was found to be contaminated with listeria.
The warning at the weekend came just days after the supermarket chain recalled a batch of its ‘Mini Blinis’ Canapes, which it sold under its ‘Special ALDI’ line, due to a ‘possible lack of food safety.’
Subsequent analysis revealed that the batch was contaminated with the potentially deadly listeria bacteria.
The company is now urging all customers who have bought the affected lot to not eat the product and return it to the store for a full refund.
The affected lot is ‘101111 DCL’ and has an expiration date of 22.11.19.
The supermarket has launched a telephone line to answer any questions from customers on 900 902 466.
All units of the product have been recalled across Spain, however Aldi reiterated that listeria was only detected in a single batch.
It is working closely with Spain’s health authorities.
