Lidl is the latest supermarket to recall a popular food product due to a health and safety issue.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) stated: “Lidl GB is recalling Fin Carré White Chocolate because it may contain pieces of plastic. The possible presence of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat.”
The supermarket has taken action to ensure the safety of customers. The FSA assured Lidl shoppers: “Lidl GB is recalling the above product.
“Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.
“These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”

Lidl’s notice read: “Lidl GB is recalling the above-mentioned product due to a potential presence of foreign bodies (plastic) which may present a choking hazard.”
The supermarket advised customers “not to eat it”, but rather return the product to their nearest Lidl store where a full refund will be given.
Lidl apologised for any inconvenience caused and thanked customers for their cooperation. The supermarket urged customers who require further info to contact Lidl Customer Care at [email protected] or on 02039665566.
The FSA echoed this advice: “If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund. Any customers with queries or concerns can contact Lidl Customer Services on 0203 966 5566 or [email protected].”
Food recalls do not happen often but must be taken seriously when they do. The FSA explained: “If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
“The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued.
“This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.”
