Biscuits sold by Aldi and three other retailers were recalled due to potential pest contamination, after being produced in “unhygienic conditions”.
The biscuits were produced by Middlesbrough firm Baketime. Products affected included: cheese thins, shortbread, chip cookies and fudge brownies, shortbread and biscotti.
All Aldi’s orders with Baketime were suspended, a spokeswoman for the discount chain told FoodManufacture.co.uk.
“We have recalled a number of Aldi-branded products that have been manufactured by Baketime and have immediately suspended all orders with this supplier while we investigate this matter,” said the spokeswoman.
In addition to Aldi, the recalled biscuits were sold by Asvina, Happy Shopper, Booker and LBV.
