Aldi urges shoppers to return chicken product and warns 'do not eat'

Aldi has issued an urgent product recall on a popular chicken product. A labelling error has resulted in an incorrect use-by-date being added to a 'small' batch of barbeque favourites.

The supermarket giant urged customers who have bought the Ashfields Grill 4 Garlic & Herb Chicken Kebabs to return them to store for a full refund. Some of the 320g packs have a use-by date of July 9 2024, when it should be June 9, 2024.

Aldi has apologised for "any inconvenience caused" and has removed the products from sale. It also insisted "no other products are affected".

The product recall notice read: "As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling Ashfields Grill 4 Garlic & Herb Chicken 320g because a small number of products have had the incorrect use by date applied of 9th July. No other products are affected.

It later added: "We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Do not consume the product and return it to your nearest store for a full refund."
