Aldi suspends ties with supplier over ‘pest contamination’

30 March 2016

Aldi has launched an investigation after its own brand snacks were recalled due to “unhygienic conditions” at a factory.

A statement issued through the Food Standards Agency said customers should not consume 16 products made by snack food manufacturer Baketime.

The FSA said the products “may have been subject to pest contamination”.

The statement said the products were recalled “on a precautionary basis as they have been manufactured in unhygienic conditions”.

Aldi has suspended ties with Baketime as a result of the recall. 

A spokesman said: “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. 

“Customers that have purchased the products listed in our public recall notices should return them to their nearest store where they will be offered a full refund.”
