GROCERY RETAILER ALDI has recalled batches of vegetarian mince due to the possible presence of bits of plastic.
Five batches of Mae’s Kitchen Frozen Meat-Free Mince are set to be recalled.
According to the Food Standards Authority of Ireland, the product is being recalled due to “the possible presence of small pieces of blue plastic”.
The implicated batches were sold in Aldi stores here, but originated in the UK.
The batch codes corresponding to the mince packs at risk are 095, 109, 122, 150 and 152.
The mince had expiry dates of April, May and June of 2018. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in Aldi stores.
