Supermarket group Albert Heijn is recalling its frozen beef, chicken and veal croquettes after ‘three or four’ customers were injured by exploding snacks, website said on Thursday.

‘Three of four consumers have been injured by a croquette suddenly bursting open,’ the Dutch market leader said. ‘The hot ragout spurted out and hit them. These reports have led us to recall the croquettes.’

The recall covers Albert Heijn’s own brand croquettes with a use-by date between June 19 and August 26, 2017. Customers can drop off the frozen snacks at any Albert Heijn supermarket for a refund.
