Aldi has been forced to recall several of its biscuit products due to possible "pest contamination" and "unhygienic conditions".

The snacks, produced by Baketime, have been removed from sale with customers advised to return the following purchases: Aldi Cheese Thins, Aldi Cheese Bakes, Aldi Oddbites and Aldi Ginger Nuts.

Redcar and Cleveland Council, where the manufacturer is based, confirmed to Sky News that the pests were mice and that the move came following a council inspection.

The Food Standards agency issued the warning, saying the recall was a "precautionary mesaure".

A statement on the watchdog's website read: "Baketime Ltd is recalling various branded biscuit, snack and confectionery products on a precautionary basis as they have been manufactured in unhygienic conditions. These products are sold by Aldi, Asvina, Booker and LBV."

A spokeswoman for Aldi said in a statement: “We have recalled a number of Aldi-branded products that have been manufactured by Baketime and have immediately suspended all orders with this supplier while we investigate this matter.

“Customers that have purchased the products listed in our public recall notices should return them to their nearest store where they will be offered a full refund.”
