Aldi has issued a product recall for biscuits sold in its shops which have been manufactured in a "dirty" factory.
It asked shoppers to return any biscuits from the ranges, which are being recalled because they may have been subject to pest contamination.
The affected products include Aldi’s Cheese Thins and Cheese Bakes, the supermarket's cheese, salt and vinegar and smoky bacon flavoured 'Oddbites', and Aldi's Ginger Nuts biscuits.
Products not under the Aldi name, but still sold in shops, that could be contaminated include Bestway’s Mini All Butter Shortbread and BV’s Strawberry and Vanilla Biscotti.
An Aldi spokesperson told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “If you have purchased any of these products, do not consume them.
"Customers who have bought these products with these batch codes are asked to return them immediately to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given.
“No other batch codes are affected.
“We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.”
An announcement from the Food Standards Agency said: "Baketime Ltd is recalling various branded biscuit, snack and confectionery products on a precautionary basis as they have been manufactured in unhygienic conditions. These products are sold by Aldi, Asvina, Booker and LBV."
