Once again, harmful substances were found in unicorn biscuits from the cheap retailer TEDi.
The product should not be eaten under any circumstances.
Munich – Not pink, happy, harmless and suitable for children: recently, when examining unicorn biscuits, food inspectors found increased doses of harmful ingredients.
As of Friday January 20, the candy was still being sold in all TEDi stores.
Now the company is recalling the products and issuing a clear warning – again.
Recall from cheap dealers: unicorn biscuits again contaminated with harmful ingredients
As reported by TEDi via the state recall platform
, increased levels of 3-MCPD and glycidol have been found in the Aldiva brand unicorn biscuits.
The former is a common ingredient in refined vegetable fats.
In food, the substance is subject to limit values by an EU regulation.
Glycidol is used in the manufacture of margarine and is also only permitted to a limited extent.
It is under strong suspicion of being carcinogenic.
Harmless packaging, dangerous content: Aldiva brand unicorn biscuits should not be eaten.
The product was sold in all TEDi stores.

Consumers can identify recalled items by their use-by date and item number
The company is therefore recalling all products in the 220-gram pack from supplier Modern Chocolate GmbH and strongly advises against consumption.
The article number of the affected article is either 12252002021000000150 or 10792002021000000255. Potential buyers can also recognize the harmful goods by the price of 1.50 or 2.55 euros or by the best before date, September 4, 2023 or December 23, 2023.
The product was sold in all TEDi stores from September 17, 2021 to January 20, 2023.
The company recalled the same article with article number 78719002021000000200 back in September last year.
In this batch, too, the proportions of 3-MCPD and glycidol are said to have exceeded their limit values.
As a better alternative to the unicorn biscuits, there are countless homemade recipes for those with a sweet tooth, where you can control the ingredients a little more precisely.
Because recalls can actually hit anyone.
The discounter Lidl also recently had to complain about biscuits.
An undeclared ingredient is not harmful per se, but could make life difficult for allergy sufferers.
