German discount retailer Aldi has issued an urgent recall notice for a popular chocolate product sold in its stores.

The Moser Roth 'Milk, White & Dark Chocolates Collection 160g' is being recalled due to incorrect ingredients labelling.

One ingredient, egg, is not declared on the packaging; something of great concern to those with egg allergies.

All batches and all best before dates of the product are affected.


The Recalled Product

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland said: "Egg is an ingredient of Moser Roth, The Collection Milk, White & Dark chocolates and is not declared on the label.  This may make the affected product unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of egg or its constituents.  This product was sold in Aldi stores."

The product has been removed from Aldi shelves.


The announcement follows another recall earlier this week following salmonella contamination fears.

Tesco was among a number of supermarkets and outlets forced to recall several pizza dough and puff pastry products.

The products, which are produced by Bakeaway, are sold under Tesco, Pizza Express and Galberts brands.

The affected products that the FSAI is urging people not to consume are listed below:


Retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches from sale, while point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

People infected with salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can range between 6 and 72 hours.

The most common symptom is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody.  Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps.  The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days.
