Aldi offers refunds on withdrawn beef products

An Aldi spokesman said it was offering refunds on products which have since been withdrawn:

Following an alert from our French supplier, Comigel, Aldi immediately withdrew its Today's Special Frozen Beef Lasagne and Today's Special Frozen Spaghetti Bolognese from stores as a precautionary measure.

Comigel had flagged concerns and we are completing our own investigations. The products will remain withdrawn from sale until we are confident that the meat content complies with the specification presented to us.

We will continue to refund consumers who return the packaged products to our stores and follow FSA guidelines on this matter.
