Aldi has urgently warned its customers over some of its chicken items.
The German supermarket, which set up its first store in the UK right here in Birmingham way back in the early-1990s, issued a health and safety notice.
Aldi issued a product recall for the product with a statement being carried on the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.
Aldi issued the urgent recall for some of its chicken products amid salmonella fears, with health and safety risks emerging after a grim discovery by the retailer.
Two products are impacted, with shoppers urgently warned to return products if necessary.
Aldi is vowing to provide full refunds to anybody who bought the Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Roosters Breaded Poppin’ Chicken.
Online, the FSA has issued the alert on their website.
It reads: “Aldi is extending its recall of Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Roosters Breaded Poppin’ Chicken to include all batches and all best before dates, because the products may contain salmonella.”
Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
The products come in a pack size of 210g, Aldi said, as the supermarket store giant confirmed: “We are recalling these products due to the possible presence of salmonella.
“Customers are advised not to eat this product and return it to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given.
“We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.”
Aldi operates multiple stores across Birmingham and throughout the wider Midlands area.
