A whole range of yogurts and other dairy products are currently being recalled due to a production error. Plastic particles could be in the affected products. Urgent consumption is not recommended. The products were sold at Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd, among others.

Recall for various yoghurts started
As can be seen from various reports from the “Lebensmittelwarnung.de” portal of the federal states and the Federal Office of Consumer Protection, a whole range of different types of yogurt and other dairy products is being recalled. The reason for the warning is that there may be plastic particles in the affected products. The products were sold at Aldi, among others.

Contamination with plastic particles
Sachsenmilch Leppersdorf GmbH and T.M.A. Handelsgesellschaft mbH recall several products from their range due to contamination with plastic particles. Due to technical problems, individual yogurts and desserts may contain plastic particles.
