Lidl has recalled a couple of products sold in stores as they could be dangerous for customers. Those who have been shopping in stores have been urged to check their cupboards.

Cologran Sucralose sweetener tablets

The discount retailer has warned customers about the sweetener tablets.

Some batches of the product could contain aspartame (E951) which is not listed on the label.

This could make it dangerous for customers with an intolerance to the substance.

A notice from Lidl states: “This is due to the product containing undeclared aspartame, a source of phenylalanine.

“Only individuals suffering from the inherited disorder phenylketonuria (PKU), who are unable to metabolise phenylalanine effectively, are affected.

“For persons not suffering from PKU the product is still suitable for consumption.”

The affected packs have 300 tablets and the best before dates of January and February 2023.

The batch codes L 00083 A, L00083 B, L00149 A all pose a risk.

Customers who have an intolerance to the substance are urged not to eat it.

A notice posted by the retailer said they can return it to stores in exchange for a refund with or without a receipt.

Alternatively, shoppers can dispose of the product themselves and get a refund by emailing customers services.

Cologran Stevia sweetener tablets

Lidl has also urged shoppers to check their cupboards for another sweetener product.

The recall was made last week and the retailer has now stated more batches could potentially be dangerous.

The product also contains undeclared aspartame, which also would cause a health risk.

The affected packs contain 100 tablets and have the best before date of December 2022.

Batch codes L 91424 A, L 91424 B, L 91424 C and L 91424 D have been recalled.

Point-of-sale notices have been issued in stores which contain more information.

The items can also be returned to stores by those with an intolerance.

The Food Standards Agency said: “If you have bought the above product, and suffer from phenylketonuria (PKU), do not eat it.

“Instead, return it to the Lidl GB store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
