Aldi Recalls Chocolate In UK Over Salmonella Concerns
Published on Jan 6 2015 11:49 AM in Retail
German discounter Aldi has recalled a batch of their Choceur Treasures following the detection of the salmonella bug.
UK Customers who bought the 200g packs of the product in stores in the Midlands with the best before date of September 1 have been warned not to eat them by food safety officials.
The affected products, which are made of hazelnuts wrapped in waffle and chocolate, were sold across the UK Midlands. The British Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said no other Choceur or Aldi products are affected.
It can take between 12 to 72 hours for salmonella symptoms to develop, which may include diarrhoea, stomach cramps, vomiting and fever.
Chocolate producer Cadbury was fined £1 million for an outbreak of salmonella in the UK in 2006, which saw 42 people fall ill.
