Recall of Woolworths Crunchy Natural Almonds 225g Snackpot
Countdown is recalling its Woolworths Crunchy Natural Almonds 225g Snackpots with a best before date of 2/01/2020. The products have been sold in Countdown stores nationwide between 30 June and 6 August 2019.
This is a precautionary measure only. Countdown is recalling these products due to non-compliant levels of aflatoxin in the almonds.
Aflatoxins are naturally occurring in many food products and are produced by a group of moulds that grow on food produced in hot and tropical climates. Levels of aflatoxin in the New Zealand diet are usually very low and don’t represent a health risk, however consumption of food products with increased levels of aflatoxin over a continuous period of time can be harmful.
We have not received any complaints or reports of illness related to this product.
Customers can return their recalled products to any Countdown supermarket for a full refund.
Countdown takes product safety seriously and apologises to customers for any inconvenience caused by this recall. Call Countdown toll free for more information: 0800 40 40 40.
