Risk of injury due to wooden foreign bodies in the chocolate ice cream from Aldi

The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety and ALDI Purchasing GmbH & Co. OHG warn of a chocolate ice cream that was sold in several branches of Aldi Nord. According to the manufacturer, wood foreign bodies were discovered in the ice concerned. Because of the risk of injury, the ice should no longer be consumed.

The supplier "DMK Eis GmbH" is recalling the article "Mucci Mini-Mix, 12 x 50 milliliters" in chocolate. The affected products have the best-before dates April 3, 2021 to April 5, 2021. The chocolate ice cream was produced in the Aldi companies Bargteheide, Barleben, Beucha, Beverstedt, Datteln, Greven, Greiz, Herten, Hesel, Horst, Bad Laasphe, Lehrte-Sievershausen , Lingen, Hann. Münden, Nortorf, Radevormwald, Rinteln, Salzgitter, Scharbeutz, Seevetal, Schloß-Holte, Schwelm, Weimar, Werl, Weyhe and Wilsdruff.

Purchase price will be refunded

"In the interests of preventive consumer protection, we have already taken the above-mentioned article from the supplier DMK Eis GmbH with the above-mentioned best before dates from the sale," Aldi Nord writes in a customer information. Customers who have already bought the ice cream can return the item to the Aldi branches and get the purchase price refunded.

Please do not consume ice cream anymore

Aldi, the supplier and the Federal Office of Consumer Protection expressly point out that the ice concerned poses a risk of injury. Wood foreign bodies in food, depending on their shape and size, can cause injuries to the lips or in the mouth and throat. If the foreign body is swallowed, breathing difficulties or shortness of breath cannot be excluded. In the worst case, there is a risk of suffocation. In addition, the foreign body can get stuck in the organism and trigger inflammatory processes there. For more information, read the article: "Small parts swallowed: first aid for dangerous foreign bodies in the body". (vb)
