Aldi Hit With Yet Another Recall
Major supermarket Aldi has issued another recall. UK stores have recalled Plant Menu Organic Super Firm Tofu, pack size 200g, with use-by dates of April 13, 2023, and April 14, 2023. This product may be unsafe to eat due to a temperature control issue. As a precautionary measure, the supermarket and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have outlined a course of action for those affected to ensure their customers' safety. The FSA stated, "Aldi is recalling Plant Menu Organic Super Firm Tofu because of a temperature control issue that could potentially spoil the product, which may be unsafe to eat.
