Urgent national recalls have been issued for two supermarket food products – Aldi’s Colway Real Mayonnaise and Nanna’s family apple pies – amid fears of potential danger to anyone who eats them.
The Aldi mayonnaise has been recalled because of faulty packaging and the potential for glass breakage.
The 466-gram jars have been sold in Aldi stores across Australia.
The supermarket chain says consumers should return the jars for a full refund.

The NSW Food Authority said in a statement that Nanna’s 600-gram family apple pies were being recalled because some of them might contain glass.
It said glass could have got into the pies because of “an equipment failure with a supplier”. Nanna’s had “initiated a recall of the affected batches as a precautionary measure”.
The pies have been sold in Coles, Woolworths, IGA, Foodlands and other independent supermarkets across Australia.
Those affected are 600-gram apple pies with a best-before date of October 21, 2020, and October 22, 2020.
