Aldi: recall of fruit – no longer eat

Anyone who has bought fruit from Aldi should be aware: the discounter has issued a callback. Specifically, it is about watermelons that should no longer be consumed.

The first supermarkets have just begun to offer absolute summer fruit – the watermelon is back! And because their taste is not only refreshing, but also automatically tastes like a holiday, they were busy stocking up on it. Now caution is required. The discounter Aldi is now pointing out a call back from their supplier for the particularly popular mini watermelons.

Aldi: recall of watermelon

Specifically, the following batch is involved:

  • "Natural favorites: mini watermelon"
  • Origin: Spain
  • GGN: 4052852232968
  • Supplier: "Catman North GmbH"

The information should be on a sticker on the mini watermelon. The reason for the recall is a plant protection product called Oxamyl. The chemical is no longer used in Germany, but in general it is still permitted as an insecticide in some EU countries. Its residues are said to have been demonstrated in a sample in the fruit. The watermelon should therefore clearly no longer be consumed.

Instead, Aldi offers to bring the product back to the store. Customers will then be reimbursed the purchase price. The mini watermelon was sold by Aldi Nord and only sold in branches of the Aldi companies Greven, Herten, Hesel, Lehrte-Sievershausen, Lingen, Radevormwald, Salzgitter and Weyhe. You can check whether the own market belongs to it on the website of the discounter.

The mini watermelon is said to have already been taken out of sale. Aldi Nord points out that other products or batches of the manufacturer are not affected and apologizes for the circumstances.
