Confirming that it has recalled packs of chocolate sold in the Midlands over salmonella fears, budget supermarket Aldi described the scare as an "isolated incident".

Aldi has recalled 200g packs of Choceur Treasures with a best before date of 1st September 2015 because salmonella was detected in one batch of the product on sale in Aldi stores in the Midlands region only.

If any of our shoppers have bought this product, we ask them to check the best before date and do not eat it if the packaging states that the best before date is 1st September 2015.

Instead, return the product to the nearest store and you will receive a full refund or exchange.

Please be assured that that the safety of our shoppers is our number one priority and this was an isolated incident.
