The supermarket chain Lidl has published on its own website the notice of a food alert related to one of its products by notice of the manufacturer itself. It’s about the fried almonds with honey marketed under its white brand Alesto, specifically four batches in which it has detected the possible presence of metallic bodies.
The AESAN has not yet echoed the notification, being the supplier of Lidl, the Spanish company Borges Agricultural & Industrial Nutsspecialized in dried fruits, which has detected the incidence in the manufactured product, transferring the information to Lidl so that it is the German company that communicates the warning and possible risk to its customers.
Lidl also points out in its statement that the only product affected from its range of Alesto snacks and nuts is the aforementioned “honey fried almond”, transferring to its customers the manufacturer’s recommendation that do not consume the same in the case of having any of the affected lots at their homes. The company guarantees the reimbursement of its amount if it is returned to the supermarket, even without a purchase receipt.
No more specific details have been given about how these detected metallic bodies would be, although it is to be assumed that there may have been some failure in the almond manufacturing or packaging chain, introducing small materials by mistake that at first glance could go unnoticed, with the consequent injury risk during its consumption.
The products affected in particular are the following:
- Product name. Honey fried almond.
- brand name. Alesto.
- lot numbers. 1113836, 1114171, 1114532 and 1114668.
