A number of biscuits and snacks sold in the supermarket chain Aldi may have been contaminated by pests, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned.
Customers are being urged not to eat the affected products, made in a factory on Teesside.
The biscuits, including cheese thins, shortbread, chip cookies and fudge brownies, were made by a company called Baketime, based in Middlesbrough.
The products are also sold in small convenience stores around the UK.
Baketime, based at South Tees Imperial Food Park, said it was recalling all the biscuits and snacks as a precautionary measure. In the meantime they were being taken off sale.
The FSA said they had been manufactured in “unhygienic conditions” – but would give no further details.
The products affected are:
