Aldi is withdrawing its Specially Selected Yogurts as some pots may contain hazelnut yogurt, which is not mentioned on the product label.

The Food Standards Agency has reported the product as a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to hazelnuts.

Product details

The names of the products are:

Specially Selected Scottish Luxury Yogurt, 150g

Specially Selected Canadian Blueberry Luxury Yogurt, 150g

Specially Selected Fudge and Cream Luxury Yogurt, 150g

The product code to watch out for is 64284 and the items have a ‘use by’ date of October 20th 2015

Aldi is advising customers: “If you have bought one of the above products and have an allergy to hazelnuts, do not eat it.

“Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

Notices are being displayed in stores that were sent the yoghurts and Aldi is contacting allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.

No other Aldi products are known to be affected.
