Australian branches of supermarket Aldi have recalled a range of hotdogs over fears they are contaminated with bacteria and bone fragments.
Consumers have been advised to return specific packs to where they were bought for a full refund.
Affected items include the 375g plastic pack of Berg Smallgoods American Style Skinless Hot Dogs for date codes up to and including a January 28, 2018 use by date.
An Aldi spokesperson said: "Aldi is committed to providing its customers with safe products of the highest quality.
"It is conducting a close investigation with the supplier of the product and is collaborating with the NSW Food Authority."
Anyone worried about their health after consuming affected items should see a doctor.
