A scam on behalf of Sparkasse, rice recall at Lidl and more: In this article, our colleagues from CHIP summarize the most important consumer topics of the week for you.

Whether it’s Aldi, Lidl, Rewe or Kaufland: the supermarkets, discounters and drugstores are constant companions for most Germans – be it for large weekend shopping or for a quick snack during the lunch break. Product recalls or production stops are therefore very relevant for many. The same also applies to company insolvencies or important innovations at Sparkasse and changes for drivers and Co. In this article we inform you about the most important innovations, changes and all other events that affect German consumers.

A number of Sparkasse customers are currently reporting a new scam. As is so often the case, phishing emails are used to obtain user data.

Dutch manufacturer Van Sillevoldt Rijst B.V. is currently recalling its products “Golden Sun Basmati Rice, 1kg” and “Golden Sun Long Grain Premium Rice in a Cooking Bag, 1kg”. These are sold in Germany at Lidl.

Motorists will soon have to take note of an important change. In future, at least two corona masks must be carried in first-aid kits. The details about it:

Penny customers have to be aware of a recall: Because glass splinters were discovered in the sun corn cans from the manufacturer “Szatmári Konzervgyár kft.” Consumption is strongly discouraged.

German consumers have to consider a spice recall. Because a poisoned bacterium was detected in the products, the manufacturer BASAK is withdrawing its ginger powder from sale.

The Federal Egg Association (BVEi) warns that the decline in laying hens and a number of other factors could mean that the supply of chicken eggs could become a problem in the coming months.
