MAJOR RECALL: Aldi hotdogs pulled from sale over bacteria, bone fragments

Popular supermarket ALDI has issued a nationwide recall on a range of hot dogs due to potential microbial contamination and the presence of bone fragments.

A recall notice posted on the Food Standards Australia New Zealand website said “ALDI takes product safety and quality very seriously, and wishes to advise customers of a recall of Berg Smallgoods American Style Skinless Hot Dogs.”

The affected hot dogs came in a 375g pack and include all date codes up to and including 28/01/18 Use By Date.


“The recall is due to potential microbial contamination and the presence of bone fragments,” the company said.

“Food products contaminated with microbial pathogens may cause illness if consumed. Food products containing foreign objects may cause injury if consumed.”

People have been urged to return the hot dogs to their nearest ALDI Store for a full refund.

Anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
