Aldi customers who have recently purchased their “Baker’s Life” hot dog rolls are being advised not to consume the product and to return it to the store for a full refund.
The German discount supermarket is recalling any of its six-pack “Baker’s Life” hot dog rolls with a best before the date of July 14. According to the company’s official product recall statement, the recall is due to “the potential presence of foreign objects (metal shavings) in the product”. The statement further advises that “food products containing foreign objects may cause injury if consumed”.
While the cause of the issue is still unknown a spokeswoman has stated that “Aldi is conducting a close investigation with the supplier of the product and is collaborating with the food safety regulating authorities”.
Aldi has apologised for any inconvenience caused and is yet to disclose whether anyone has been harmed.
