Recall: supermarkets warn of poisonous baked goods

Anyone who buys baked goods from the supermarket should be careful now: there is a recall due to toxic ingredients.

Nowadays, supermarkets leave nothing to be desired. In addition to drugstore products and fresh produce departments, more and more shops are also offering baked goods. For most of us, baking products are part of our weekend shopping. But now everyone should check their pantry: supermarkets and discounters will inform you about a recall of said baked goods.

Recall of baked goods at Aldi Süd and Rewe

Specifically, these are bagels that can be baked and were sold at both Aldi Süd and Rewe. The following product is affected at the discounter:

  • Mill gold bagels
  • in the 340 gram pack
  • Variety "sesame"
  • Manufacturer Aldente GmbH
  • all best before dates from 23.09.2020 up to and including 13.11.2020
  • Barcode: 4061458025751
  • sold at Aldi Süd in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia

At Rewe, the bagels were sold under a different brand:

  • Aldente's Brotwelt Bagels Sesame
  • in the 350 gram pack
  • Manufacturer Aldente GmbH
  • Best before dates from 23.09.2020 up to and including 13.11.2020
  • Barcode 4044808580032

Poisonous crop protection agent

The bagels should no longer be eaten. The reason for the recall are toxins that were found during an examination of the sesame seeds. These are residues of a pesticide. Even if the bagels should only contain three percent sesame, Aldi advises you to refrain from eating it.

According to "", the pesticide should be ethylene oxide. The substance is considered toxic and carcinogenic. In animal experiments, reproductive defects such as miscarriages and mutations are said to have been detected.

The bagels should already have been taken off the market after the recall. However, if you still have an affected pack at home, you should bring it back to the appropriate Rewe or Aldi Süd branch. Customers will then receive the purchase price refunded even without a receipt.
