A recent food safety alert has prompted urgent action from consumers across Spain.

The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN), has issued a recall for several popular brands of chocolate cookies which could contain metal fragments. The products are distributed from well-known supermarkets within Spain.

This alert was triggered by information received via the European Food Alert Network (RASFF), following a notification from the health authorities in the Netherlands.

Where to find the affected cookies

The cookies in question are sold at Aldi and Lidl, two prominent supermarkets. The products include Cookies Aux Trois Chocolats by the Arizona brand, McEnnedy’s Grandino triple chocolate, and Sondey’s Nougatelli cookies. The distributing companies have already removed these items from their shelves.

The recall targets several regions including Andalucia, Catalonia, the Canary Islands, the Community of Madrid, the Valencian Community, Galicia, the Basque Country, and the Region of Murcia. There is also a possibility that these products have reached other areas.
