Aldi: no risk to food safety

Following the withdrawal of its Oakhurst Beef Burgers (8 Pack) in the Republic of Ireland yesterday, Aldi has made the decision to withdraw three products from sale in the UK as a "purely precautionary measure" whilst it conducts further investigations.

  • Frozen Oakhurst 100% Beef Quarter Pounders
  • Frozen Specially Selected Aberdeen Angus Quarter Pounders
  • Frozen Oakhurst Burgers 16 pack

Aldi would like to stress that there is no risk to food safety, and the product tested by the FSAI, Oakhurst Beef Burgers (8 Pack) is not on sale in Aldi UK stores. Any customers who wish to return the products in question will receive an immediate refund. No other Aldi products are affected by this issue.
