The product recalls have been coming thick and fast in the last few days and Lidl is the latest store to come out and say that one of their products is being recalled. 

Lidl has urgently recalled batches of its 'Alesto' dried fruit products as allergens are not labelled in English. 

This follows two other recalls from supermarkets Dunnes Stores and Tesco Ireland. 

Dunnes Stores has pulled these yoghurts from shelves due to the possible presence of rubber pieces while Tesco Ireland have been forced to recall certain batches of these ready-made meals because they contain milk which is not mentioned on the label.

Lidl Ireland's 200g affected Alesto dried fruit products are the 'pitted and dried apricots (Albaricoques/Alperces)' and 'dried mixed fruit (Meƶcla de frutas/Mistura de frutos)' which contain sulphur dioxide and there may also be an unintentional presence of nuts.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland warned that all best before dates are affected and that: "This may make the batches unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of sulphur dioxide, sulphites or nuts."

If these products are in your home, it is recommended that you bring it back to your nearest store where you can avail of a refund or a replacement of the product.
