The budget supermarket Lidl has issued yet another warning as they recall more beer from their store shelves.
The German grocer issued a ‘drink non-warning’ when they recalled their Starovice Czech Lager from the shelves earlier this month due to the presence of sulfur dioxide.
Anyone with allergies or sensitivities to sulfites and sulfur dioxide had been warned not to ingest the product and return it immediately.
Now, Lidl has released an update on the recall, warning customers that it has been extended to include more date codes from the affected batch.
The recall was for Starovice Czech Lager 5.0% with a best-before date of October 16, 2022, reports The Mirror.
This has now been extended to include all dates up to and including December 23, 2022.
In a statement published online, Lidl said: “Lidl GB is recalling Starovice Czech Lager 5.0%, 500ml – all in stock, due to undeclared sulfur dioxide, which is an allergen.
“If you have purchased the above product and you have an allergy or intolerance to sulfur dioxide, we advise you not to drink it.
“Instead, send it back to a Lidl GB store for a full refund, with or without a receipt.
“The recall of this item has now been extended to include all best-before dates.
“Lidl GB would like to apologize for the inconvenience.”
All customers with questions or concerns can contact Lidl customer service on 0370 444 1234 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When a supermarket product is recalled, you usually do not need your receipt to get your money back.
However, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer will usually have the primary responsibility for the recall action.
For all product recalls, check the Food Standards Agency and Chartered Trading Standards Institute websites.
You should also notice recall notices in stores if they have pulled a product off the shelves.
