Leader in the food market, Lidl always strives to offer us the best products. It is also one of the mottos of the German brand to offer us quality at a low price. And while the team strictly sorts out what it presents in store, sometimes certain items aren’t as healthy as one might think. This reminder that the brand has just launched everywhere in France should also attract your attention!
Lidl recalls children’s cupcakes
If you do your shopping regularly at Lidl, there is a good chance that you have taken this product which is on recall. A common practice that the German brand operates when these items are suspected ” dangerous for your health “. This is also why we often remind you to carefully check the labels of your foodstuffs before any purchase. In any case, for this time, it is therefore a batch of cupcakes intended for children that the brand has in its sights.
In its recall notice, Lidl specifically mentions the “Mini Chocolate Chip Cakes”. From the Sondey brand, the latter is one of the items that the brand offers in large quantities on its shelves. And this, everywhere in France. These include lots 046G210 / 046G211 / 046G212 that you may have found in stores between February 16 and March 23. If you have it in your basket or at home, know that it is therefore not very suitable for your child.
An overload of additive in question!
The causes of product recalls at Lidl can be very numerous. If we often talk about preservatives, it’s an additive problem that the Hard Discounter reported this time. Indeed, the cupcakes for children in question here would present too much sodium diphosphate. Also known as E450, it is used in many industrial products. It is therefore not really dangerous for health unless consumed in very large quantities.
As indicated by the health authorities and Lidl, this additive would be the cause of certain digestive disorders for sensitive people. And this obviously includes children who often have a rather fragile system. It will therefore be necessary to be careful when you give this type of product to eat to them. Especially since in this product the additive greatly exceeds the permitted rate.
What to do if you have this Lidl product?
Concerned about the well-being of its customers, Lidl therefore calls for a recall of this product dangerous to health. The brand agrees to take them back in the various stores on French territory where it has been put on sale. Upon presentation of your ticket or not depending on the instructions, it is possible to be reimbursed for this purchase.
Have you ever consumed the product in question? Ideally, you should go to a doctor as soon as possible. This will determine whether the product has had an impact on your health or that of your children.
