Today Aldi announced a voluntary recall of its Earth Grown Vegan Non-Dairy Almond Based Frozen Dessert over the possibility of an undeclared cashew allergen. In other words, when the dessert was manufactured, it was produced in a plant that also used cashews. This might have led to some cashew allergens getting into the dessert. The law requires this to be declared on the nutrition label, which it is not.
If you’re allergic to cashews, you should not eat this dessert. You can return it to Aldi for a refund.
If you’re not allergic to cashews, you have nothing to worry about, although Aldi has removed this product from shelves, so you won’t be able to get it for now.
