Your product recall rights
PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.
As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.
But it's often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.
If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.
When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don't there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.
If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.
They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.
In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.
You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.
Salmonella infection is among the most common causes of food poisoning, and can prove dangerous to the elderly and young children.
Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
The chicken goujons are listed for £1.15 on Aldi's website, but the discounter didn't confirm how many packs are being recalled.
A spokesperson told The Sun it's recalling the packs as "a precaution".
It added in a statement in recall notice: "We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation."
The recall comes after Aldi recalled two other Roosters chicken products due to salmonella fears in October.
Last week, Asda recalled vegetable cous cous due to salmonella contamination fears.
Ikea has also recalled bowls, plates and mugs due to fears they could burn you.
While cables sold at Argos and B&Q have been recalled over electrocution and fire risk fears.
