Aldi Colway Real Mayonnaise is subject to a recall by the NSW Food Authority in Australia. A warning has been issued about all batches of the 466g jars of the product.

Chocolate Cornflake Cluster Mini Bites were recalled over fears the product might contain salmonella.
Listeria has also been a major issue this year, with Aldi, Lidl, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose forced to recall items over Listeria safety concerns.
The disease even swept through the USA after months of causing havoc in the UK.
The scare began in October when five recalls were made in the country – mostly in ready-to-eat salads.
The first recall happened in Texas, with the recall of two 7-Eleven salads – with the corn being used believed to have been affected.
The result was a fast sweep of recalling many products across the country.
Following the recall in Texas, GH Foods recalled ready-to-eat salads sold at Whole Foods in California.
Moments later, the sweep of recalls spread to Idaho, Oregon and Washington, where cooked chicken products were taken off the shelves by Mary’s Harvest Fresh Foods.
The recalls didn’t stop there, with GH Foods and GHSE recalling 738 pounds worth of Marketside Fiesta Salad. The salads are sold in Florida, Georgie and South Carolina.
