A wave of food alerts have been noticed in the past two weeks, as supermarkets such as Kaufland, Lidl and Mega Image have withdrawn various products from sale. The products were either infested with Salmonella, or included various ingredients not properly written on the package, which could have led to allergies for various persons, adevarul.ro informs.

The most recent withdrawal was made by Lidl Romania, which decided to take off the shelves two types of sandwiches suspected of having  potential to lead to allergic reactions once consumed.

The announcement was made by the Sanitary Veterinary and Food Safety Authority, which says that people who bought these products will get their money back.

“We found out that the affected products contain unlabeled soy flour,” Lidl Romania said.

The wave of food alerts should worry the consumers, says Sorin Mierlea, chairman of InfoCons – Association for Consumer Protection. He says the biggest problem is that these products, withdrawn from the shelves, have been admitted for sale, passing all the quality controls, although they do not meet the norms and can endanger the consumers’ health.
