Aldi said only one of its products - which is only on sale in the Republic of Ireland - was affected.
In a statement, Aldi Stores (Ireland) said: "Following notification this afternoon from the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) of an issue in relation to our Oakhurst Beef Burgers (8 pack) we have immediately removed the product from sale and have launched an investigation into the matter."
The company said it "takes the quality of all its products extremely seriously and demands the highest standards from its suppliers".
