Aldi hotdogs contaminated with Listeria in Australia

I didn’t know they had hot dogs in Australia. There’s sausages, snags and snots, but not a lot of hot dogs.

Apparently I need to go to ALDI’s: or maybe not.

ALDI Berg Hot DogsCanberrans are urged to check any hotdogs bought from Aldi that might be contaminated with Listeria.

ACT Health Protection Service director John Woollard said shoppers needed to check their freezers for any Strassburg and Skinless hotdogs. 

Tibaldi Australasia Pty Ltd in association with Aldi supermarkets is recalling Aldi Berg Strassburg and Aldi Berg Skinless Hotdogs from stores in the ACT, as well as Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria after the products were found to be contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

Mr Woollard said the items should not be eaten. 

And how was this Listeria contamination detected?
