Consumers have been advised to return specific packs to where they were bought for a full refund.

Affected items include the 375g plastic pack of Berg Smallgoods American Style Skinless Hot Dogs for date codes up to and including a January 28, 2018 use by date.

An Aldi spokesperson said: “Aldi is committed to providing its customers with safe products of the highest quality.

“It is conducting a close investigation with the supplier of the product and is collaborating with the NSW Food Authority.”
