Tesco and Aldi issue recall on popular product over safety fears | The Sun

TESCO and Aldi have been forced to recall a popular product amid safety fears.

Customers who have recently purchased the items have been urged to return them, with a full refund offered.

The major supermarket chains have had to pull certain cereals after they were found to pose a risk to people with particular allergies.

Tesco's Free From Bran Flakes and Chocolate Pillows were discovered to contain milk and hazelnuts.

The issue affects 300g packs with a best before date of 26 May 2024.

Customers won't be required to provide proof of purchase to claim their refund.

Aldi, meanwhile, have urged buyers to return Harvest Morn High Protein Bars due to them containing milk, peanuts and soya.

The ingredients have either not been listed or not highlighted in bold on the boxes, as all allergens must be.

The affected flavours are Birthday Cake, Cookie Dough, Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter, Protein Mint and Jaffa Orange.

A spokesperson for Aldi said: "As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling Harvest Morn High Protein Bars because in some cases allergens are not emphasised in bold on the packaging.

"Anyone who has bought this product and suffers from an allergy or intolerance to the ingredients listed, should return it to any Aldi store for a full refund. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

Full details with barcode numbers and product codes can be found on the supermarket's website.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) put out an alert announcing the recalls.

The agency explained: "Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.

"Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

"Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

"When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert."
