Aldi is withdrawing its Specially Selected Yogurts as some pots may contain hazelnut yogurt, which is not mentioned on the product label.

The Food Standards Agency has reported the product as a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to hazelnuts.

The names of the products are:

- Specially Selected Scottish Luxury Yogurt, 150g

- Specially Selected Canadian Blueberry Luxury Yogurt, 150g

- Specially Selected Fudge and Cream Luxury Yogurt, 150g

The product code is 64284 and the use by date is October 20, 2015

A spokesman for the FSA said: “If you have bought one of the above products and have an allergy to hazelnuts, do not eat it.

“Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

“Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in stores that were distributed the product. Aldi will be contacting the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.

“No other Aldi products are known to be affected,” he added.
