Aldi has recalled a popular Thai salad because it contains cashews, despite the label stating otherwise.
Thai coconut wild rice prepared salads from Fresh Salad Co. with best-before dates from July 3 to July 9, 2022.
An allergy to cashews can cause an anaphylactic reaction when eating, inhaling cashew dust, or even touching the nuts with bare skin.
Product Safety Australia warned of possible health damage if the salad is consumed by a person with the allergy.
“Consumers with an allergy or intolerance to cashews may experience a reaction if the product is consumed,” the website says.
“All consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.”
Affected salads have a barcode of 4088700324783 and were sold in a plastic container.
