Aldi has been forced to recall one of its pasta products after the packaging failed to mention an ingredient which could pose a health risk to some customers.

This product recall is the second issued in a number of months with another still in place due to risk of broken glass.

Aldi issues product recall due to risk of broken glass

A product recall remains in place for Lacura Cozmo His and Her 100ml fragrances. 

Aldi issued an "emergency" recall for these items just after Christmas as a "precautionary measure" due to an issue with the bottles. 


Aldi, at the time, said: "Please note that the following Emergency Withdrawal and Public Product Recall has taken place.

"As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling this product due to a fault which may cause the glass bottle to break."

The supermarket chain added it had removed the products from sale in all stores and is calling all customers who purchased the product to return it to their local store.
