Supermarkets Tesco, Aldi and Nisa have been affected by a product recall after fear pastry products from brands including Walls and Millers could contain metal.

According to reports, a total of 59 products made by Addo Food Group, including supermarket own-brands, have been recalled with Tesco being worst hit.

“The products affected are own-branded products produced for Aldi, Nisa and Tesco and branded products under the Walls and Millers brands,” said the Food Standards Agency (FSA) via a statement. “If you have bought any of the products about, do not eat them.”

Aldi has confirmed “the possible presence of small pieces of metal” in six of its own-branded pastry products and encourage customers to bring them back as soon as possible.

All products can be returned for a full refund.

Last year, The Drum columnist, Stephen Waddington, revealed product recall pressure had hit an all-time high as brands move quickly to do the right thing.
