Aldi issues product recall for incorrectly labelled meal

Aldi is recalling their Ready Set Cook Teriyaki Beef Stir Fry for all use-by dates up to and including October 22 because it contains wheat (gluten) which is not listed on the product’s packaging.

This means the product may pose a possible health risk for anyone with coeliac disease, and/or an allergy or intolerance to wheat or gluten.

Affected customers are advised not to eat the product and instead return it to their nearest store where they will be issued a full refund.

Aldi’s product recall notice reads: “As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling this product because it is incorrectly labelled and contains Wheat (Gluten).

“Customers are asked to return this product to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given. We apologise that this product did not meet our normal high standards and thank you for your co-operation.”

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) have issued an allergy alert and Aldi has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will inform their members about the product recall.

When there is a problem with a food product meaning it should not be sold, it might be ‘withdrawn’ – taken off the shelves – or ‘recalled’ – when customers are asked to return the product.

For more information regarding the Ready Set Cook Teriyaki Beef Stir Fry customers are encouraged to visit or call customer services on 0800 042 0800.

It’s been a busy October for Aldi which has seen them open three new stores in Slough, Coventry, and Askern respectively.

This comes after a £1.4bn, two-year investment pledge to open a number of new sites was announced in September.
