ALDI is recalling its Bakers Life Hot Dog Rolls in its NSW and ACT stores after the product was suspected to contain metal shavings. The discount supermarket has urged customers to return the bread buns to where they have purchased them.

The affected product is the 6-pack Bakers Life Hot Dog Rolls with the best before date of July 14 and was packaged in a 450g plastic bag with clip. This was available for sale in ACT and NSW stores. According to ALDI, it is recalling the product due to potential presence of foreign objects, specifically metal shavings.

“ALDI takes product quality and safety seriously and wishes to advise all customers of a recall of the above product with the specified Best Before date,” a statement on ALDI’s website reads. It adds that customers should not consume the product and should return it instead to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.

Customers may call ALDI’s food recall hotline on 1800 709 993.

Earlier this month, the NSW Food Authority also advised customers to return another product to ALDI. The Hillcrest Chewy Choc Squiggle Muesli Bars, with the Best Before date of 10MAY17, were sold at the supermarket’s NSW, QLD, ACT, VIC, SA and WA stores. The product had eight bars in a 250g cardboard box.

The product was found to contain an undeclared allergen of peanut. Consumers who have peanut allergy or intolerance were advised not to consume the product and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund instead.
