Aldi recalls some Stonemill Ground Coriander

Aldi has recalled some of its own-brand Stonemill Group Coriander with a ‘best before’ date of 14 October 2012, because the product is contaminated with salmonella. Salmonella is a bacterium that causes food poisoning. The Agency has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.

Product details

The product being recalled from customers is:

  • Aldi Stonemill Ground Coriander, 40g jar
  • Best before: 14 October 2012
  • Batch code: 14.10.12 C2

Product recall notices will be shown in stores that sell the product, explaining why the product has been recalled and how customers can get a full refund. Product recall notices will also appear in the press on Thursday 16 September 2010.

About product withdrawals and recalls

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.

You can get FSA alerts about product recall and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link towards the bottom of this page to find out how.
