Consumers who have an allergy or intolerance to any of the above ingredients may have a reaction after consuming the snack.

Australia’s Food Standards Code specifies that a number of allergens – peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, sesame seeds, fish and shellfish, soy and wheat and lupins – must be declared on the food label.

The recall applies to all best before dates.

“Customers should return the product to the place of purchase for a full cash refund,” the supermarket said in a statement.

“ALDI Stores takes product quality and safety seriously and we apologise for any inconvenience.”
