Aldi recalls more chicken Rooster products due to salmonella fears

ALDI has extended its recall of two Roosters chicken products to include all batches and best before dates over fears they contain salmonella.

The budget supermarket issued alerts for packs of Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Breaded Poppin' Chicken earlier this month as a "precaution".

The product recall initially applied to just one best before date and specific batch codes, but the supermarket is now recalling all of the packs.

The Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Breaded Poppin' Chicken packs both weigh 210g and are listed for 85p each on Aldi's website.

If you've bought the any of the products, Aldi is advising customers to avoid eating them.

Instead, you should return the packs to your nearest Aldi store for a full refund.

Aldi has 900 stores across the UK. You can use Aldi's shop locator to find your closest one.

The supermarket is yet to confirm how many packs it's recalling, so we'll update this article if we get a response.

Aldi told The Sun no other Roosters products are affected by the recall.

Salmonella infection is among the most common causes of food poisoning, and can prove particularly dangerous to the elderly and young children.

Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

An Aldi spokesperson told The Sun: "We are recalling all batches of this product as a precaution as it may contain traces of salmonella.

"Customers are advised not to eat these products and should return them to their nearest store for a full refund."

Aldi added in a recall notice on the Food Standards Agency website: "We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation."

Your product recall rights

PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.

As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.

But it's often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.

If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.

When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you - the customer - to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don't there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.

If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.

They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.

In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.

You should not be charged for any recall work - such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.

Last week, Lidl started recalling cheddar cheese over fears it contains plastic pieces.

Meanwhile, Iceland recalled two of its popular chicken meals in August over fears they contain salmonella.

While fruit and nut bar brand Eat Natural also recalled some of its products due to the same issue.
