Aldi Tortilla Wraps Recalled Over Contamination Fears Amid Police Probe into Deliberate Tampering

Aldi’s 99p tortilla wraps are being recalled from stores amidst fears of potential contamination, prompting a response from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and law enforcement agencies.

The recall follows suspicions of deliberate tampering, with the FSA issuing a warning about possible metal presence in the wraps.

Manufacturer Cooperation with Authorities

Signature Flatbreads UK, the company responsible for producing the Village Bakery 8 Tortilla Wraps, has initiated the recall in collaboration with relevant food and police agencies to investigate the cause of contamination.

The recall is a precautionary measure to ensure consumer safety.

Details of the Recall Notice

The FSA’s official notice highlights the potential presence of metal in the tortilla wraps, emphasizing the safety hazard posed by consuming the product.

While the recall is specific to the affected Aldi tortilla wraps, no other products from Aldi or Signature Flatbreads UK are reported to be affected.

Instructions for Consumers

Consumers are advised not to consume the recalled product and instead return it to the point of purchase for a full refund.

Notices will be displayed in stores selling the wraps, providing information about the recall and guidance for affected customers. Aldi’s customer services are available for any queries or concerns regarding the recall.

Background and Additional Information

Signature Flatbreads UK, based in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, expressed regret over the situation and assured cooperation with the recall process.

Meanwhile, a separate incident involving Taj Chopped Spinach, also recalling due to metal contamination fears, is not directly linked to the tortilla wraps recall. Consumers are urged to exercise caution and adhere to recall instructions to ensure their safety.
