YERUSHALAYIM – Food producers and distributors in Israel are understandably jittery amid the salmonella scare at Strauss Foods, and Shufersal, for one, is taking no chances.

The supermarket chain announced on Sunday a recall of biscuits it markets under its own brand due to concerns about nylon fibers in the baked goods.

Shufersal said the fibers accidentally entered the biscuits during production, and it was collecting the products from stores “out of caution.”

The items in question were Shufersal petit beurre biscuits (500 g) and Shufersal chocolate petit beurre biscuits (500 g), marked with an expiry date between October 1 and October 13, 2022. “Products in other date ranges are sound and there is no concern in consuming them,” the company said.
