Consumers are being warned not to eat two cheese products available at ALDI stores amid a suspected Listeria infection.
ALDI has issued an urgent national recall on two cheese products amid a suspected disease outbreak that could lead to illness in pregnant women.
The popular supermarket chain on Thursday announced a recall on Snackers Market Little Pickers Cubed Tasty Cheese and Mini Crackers (35g), and Little Pickers Cubed Tasty Cheese and Pretzels (40g) due to a suspected Listeria infection.
Food Standards Australia and New Zealand said the cheese had been sold at ALDI stores nationally, with the recall applying to all products marked with use by dates up to February 3, 2022.
“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund,” ALDI said in its recall notice.
It’s the second cheese-related recall announced by Food Standards this week, with people also being urged to avoid eating the Good To Go brand Tasty Cheese Salami and Cabanossi products from a range of IGA Woolworths supermarkets and featuring certain use-by dates.
A suspected Listeria infection is also to blame.
Manassen Foods Australia said the Mild Salami Bite use-by dates of concern are December 21, 24, and January 13, while the Cabanossi dates are December 15 and 23.
The products have been available for sale at Woolworths and independent grocery stores including IGAs in NSW, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, SA and WA.
Monta Foods last week recalled its YBC Picola Strawberry 58.8g product because of an undeclared egg allergen.
