Salmonella found in Midlands batch of Aldi chocolates

Chocolates sold by supermarket Aldi are being recalled after salmonella was found in a batch of their Choceur Treasures.

The store is recalling 200g packs of the Choceur Treasures that have a best before date of 1 September 2015.

According to an Aldi spokesperson the batch was only sold in the Midlands region, including the towns and cities, Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham, Leicester, Worcester, Wolverhampton, Coventry and Grantham.

The store is advising shoppers to return the product to their nearest store for a full refund or exchange.

Salmonella is impossible to detect from its appearance and even its smell and taste but the symptoms can be serious and leave sufferers needing medical attention.

Taking from 12 to 72 hours to develop, symptoms include stomach cramps, diarrhoea and sometimes vomiting and fever.

There have been no reported cases of anyone affected after eating the Aldi chocolate.

No other Aldi products are said to be affected.

The supermarket described the recall as “an isolated incident” and said that the safety of their shoppers is their number one priority.
