One of the best-known shopping malls in the USA has recalled one of its products. All indications are that the withdrawal is motivated by fears that it may harm its customers’ health and well-being. Moreover, Lidl has advised all those clients who have already purchased the product. They should return it to their nearest shopping center as soon as possible.
The Lidl chain of shopping centers is not the first, nor will it be the last, to recall a food product. This action is carried out when the product is deemed unfit for consumption. After taking the decision, the shopping mall proceeds to withdraw the food from the market and issues a notice to its customers to return the product quickly before consuming it and getting sick.
Which food has been recalled by the German retail chain?
In this recent withdrawal, Lidl has proceeded to discard its Katsu Kiev breaded with two birch trees from the Lidl catalog because it has an ingredient that the label does not mention. This error can cause serious health problems for its customers. That is because milk (the omitted ingredient) can cause allergies and other conditions for intolerant users.
Incorrect packaging, as has been the case, must be resolved as quickly as possible to avoid possible intoxication to its customers. In these cases, as soon as the company detects the error, it must promptly remove the product from its shelves. It should immediately alert its customers that, if they purchased the product, they should return it to the store as soon as possible.
How to distinguish the product
This product was preserved in a 260-gram package, which was recommended to be consumed before Monday, October 24. Thanks to the dissemination of the message by the Health Standards Agency (FSA) on its website, users were able to find out about the withdrawal of this food.
Specifically, the message from the Agency stated that the product could contain milk, which did not mention on the packaging label. That could be harmful to lactose intolerant, allergic people, etc. In addition, it further reassured users that Lidl was already taking action to recall the product before more people purchased it. It advised the immediate return of the product to the shopping center.
He also mentioned that Lidl had already contacted different allergy support organizations to inform members about this serious and problematic situation.
