Health Bosses have forced Aldi to recall one of it’s Christmas seafood lines over fears of deadly bacteria.

They are believed to contain salmonella bacteria which causes severe food poisoning.

The Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has issued a recall notice on two batches of Aldi’s specially selected Tikka King Prawns.

The two batches are believed to have been sold in Scotland and Northumberland and they believe they contain salmonella bacteria.

A spokesman for FSS said: “Aldi is recalling the affected product from its customers and displaying point of sale notices in stores explaining to customers the reason for recall and the actions they can take if they have bought the affected product.

Aldi spokeswoman said: “Our Specially Selected Tikka King Prawns have been recalled from sale in our stores in Scotland and Berwick-upon-Tweed.

“This is a precautionary measure after testing detected the presence of salmonella in a very small sample of products.

“No other products or stores are affected and we have removed all affected products from our stores.

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