Aldi has issued a warning over a chicken dish, urging anyone who has bought it not to eat it and instead return the product to a store for a refund. The Food Standards Agency said the supermarket was recalling its Ashfields Grill 4 Garlic & Herb Chicken Kebabs because of a labelling error which shows an incorrect use-by date, making the product unsafe to eat.

The FSA said the labelling error meant the product was unsafe to eat after the correct use-by date of June 9, 2024. Therefore it was advised for anyone who has bought the product not to eat it.

The FSA said: "Aldi is recalling the above product. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product. Our advice to consumers.

"If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund. For further information, please visit help.aldi.co.uk or contact 0800 042 0800."

About product recalls and withdrawals

The FSA said: If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers."
