The company Lidl GB has just announced a recall for Cologran Stevia tablets. These sweeteners contain aspartame, or E951. Although not harmful for most people, it is essential for this ingredient to be listed on labels. This is because consuming it is a risk for individuals living with phenylketonuria (PKU). Realizing that they did not adequately label their product, Lidl GB has announced that they are recalling the item.
The recall is specifically for the Cologran Stevia Sweetener Tablets in the pack size of 100. The code of the batch that was not adequately labeled is L 91424 C. The expiration date on this product was December 2022.
As a result of the recall, notices will be posted in all of the Lidl GB stores that had received this product. The notices will explain the reason for the recall, as well as any action they should take.
For those with PKU, the company has stated that the product should not be consumed. You can return the product to the same store you bought it from for a complete refund.
