The two German brands, present on the Romanian market for about two decades, do not miss any inspection by the Consumer Protection Authority (ANPC) without registering sanctions for products harmful to the health of the Romanian population. Year after year, without exception and with the German consistency of deception.
Anyone who is a customer of the above-mentioned brands and who is gifted with a spirit of observation can find that the Germans are put to great deeds to get as much money as possible out of the pockets of the Romanians. Pastry products of dubious quality, sweets made from all kinds of raw materials that are pleasant to the taste but unhealthy, goods with confused labeling that deceive customers into buying them. Bad, but cheap.
This is how it happens that, currently, the market share of the two food retail brands, Kaufland and Lidl, have a market share of about 20% on the Romanian profile market. Undeserved, if we take into account the quality and unhealthy origin of most products from the dairy, meat, fish, bakery and even soft drinks range.
Yesterday, ANPC informed the public about the latest “non-compliant” product on the food market. “An assortment of cod patties were withdrawn from Lidl stores on Friday, following a suspicion of Listeria contamination, announced the National Sanitary-Veterinary and Food Safety Authority”.
“The manufacturer Jeka Fish is preventively recalling the product “Sødergaarden Cod meatballs, Scandinavian style 340g” (barcode 20295271), with the expiration dates 15.09.2022 and 25.11.2022, as a result of a suspicion of contamination with Listeria Monocytogenes bacteria. Customers who bought this product with the expiration dates of 15.09.2022 and 25.11.2022 are asked not to consume it. The product can be returned in any Lidl store, and its value will be refunded without the need to present the tax receipt”
On August 24, 2022, the local press shows that “several Lidl stores across the country were fined for selling expired and moldy products, the amount of fines reaching 3.5 million lei, according to a press release from the National Authority for Consumer Protection”. “The most important irregularities found by ANPC were the marketing of food products with expired consumption dates, the marketing of pastry products that had insects on the surface, the marketing of alcoholic beverages with labeling deficiencies (lack of some ingredients on the label) , the sale of vegetables and fruits not properly cleaned, of poor quality, with mold, organoleptically modified, of different calibers and unsanitized eggs, the press release states.
In 2019, the most important irregularities found by ANPC were the marketing of food products with expired consumption limits, the marketing of pastry products that had insects on the surface, the marketing of alcoholic beverages with labeling deficiencies (lack of some ingredients on the label), the sale of vegetables and fruits not properly cleaned, of poor quality, with mold, organoleptically modified, of different calibers and unsanitized eggs, the release states.
At the end of September 2022, ANPC identified a series of irregularities at a supermarket in Cluj-Napoca:
– The existence of misleading promotional offers related to multipack campaigns, without the price of the package being consistent with the unit price of the product;
– Mention of a different country of origin on the product’s price tag compared to the label on the packaging;
-Commercialization of vegetables and fruits with mold and rot, unfit for human consumption;
– The existence of unsanitary pavement with products stored directly on it, in a state of fermentation;
-Using unsanitary freezers;
-Using unsanitized refrigerated display cases, with leaking contents, agglomerations of dust, slime, various liquids, unsuitable for storing food products.
As a result of the action, the control team applied 3 warnings and a contravention fine in the amount of 100,000 lei.
And them? For businesses worth billions of lei on the Romanian market, such a fine is insignificant.
Such events that cast a dark light on the two German supermarket chains occur every year. And every year, the two brands do their “mea culpa”, but to the disdain of Romanian consumers.
Schwarz-Markt is moving forward in Romania and in many other countries.
Does the Schwarz family, who patronize the two supermarket chains, eat infected or expired products?
