Aldi withdraws sausage rolls over sulphur labelling

You might want to return the foods, particularly if you’re asthmatic.

ALDI HAS WITHDRAWN a number of sausage rolls after they were incorrectly labelled.

The German grocery giant told the FSAI that the packaging of Kelly’s sausage rolls omitted sulphites and removed the products. These can trigger allergic reactions, particularly in asthmatics.

“Sulphites were not declared on the label of all batches of the sausage rolls listed,” says a statement from the FSAI.

“This may make them unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of sulphur dioxide or sulphites. These products were sold in Aldi stores.”

The FSAI says that all use by dates are affected by the labelling issue and that four-, eight- and 16-pack products are affected.

Aldi says that they demand the highest standards from their suppliers.

“In addition, Aldi carries out regular independent testing of all products we sell.

“Aldi can confirm that routine product testing highlighted a labelling issue in relation to our Kelly’s sausage roll products. We immediately informed the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) of the matter and removed the products from sale. We are now investigating the issue with our supplier.

“Customers who have purchased this product should return it to their nearest Aldi store for a full refund. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank customers for their co-operation.”
