Aldi urgently recalls popular Christmas product over injury fears

Aldi has issued an "Emergency Withdrawal and Public Product Recall" notice over one of its items over injury-related fears.

It follows faults detected in glass bottles of the perfumes Lacura Cozmo His 100ml and Lacura Cozmo Hers 100ml, which the supplier has said may break. The fault, which Aldi did not detail, may affect bottles sold across all regions of the country.

Aldi has warned those who have bought the popular Christmas products, which it has removed from all its stores in the UK and Ireland, not to use them. The budget supermarket chain emphasised that all its products undergo rigorous quality checks.

"As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling this product due to a fault which may cause the glass bottle to break," the retail giant said. "We apologise that this product did not meet our normal high standards and thank you for your co-operation."

The "important notice" appears on Aldi's website. The company urged the approximately £7 product purchasers to request a full refund by returning it to their nearest stores.

Aldi and other retailers may recall products for several reasons, including safety, quality, and health. Aldi issued another recall in November 2023 over its Roosters Southern Fried Chicken Fillet Goujons with a best before date of May 2025. It was said the item potentially contained salmonella, a type of bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

When such products are recalled, codes are generally given alongside them so customers can identify the exact item they bought. Aldi said the recalled Lacura perfume bottles, Lacura Cozmo for Him Eau de Parfum and Lacura Cozmo for Her Eau de Parfum, have the following barcodes:

  • 4061459901849 (for him)
  • 4061459901863 (for her)

Affected customers can call Aldi in the UK on 0800 042 0800.

You can also visit the following section of the Aldi website for more information.

The name "Aldi" is short for "Albrecht Diskont," referring to the Albrecht family, who are the founders of the company. Aldi is known for its focus on providing affordable groceries and household products.
